Adding Symptoms to your uBiome Upload

Symptoms are only collected for uBiome samples. The reason is simple, we need lots of data on bacteria to go with lots of symptoms to isolate patterns.

Getting to the Symptoms List

There are three ways of getting to the menu shown below

This takes you back to the menu that you saw when you finished uploaded.


Click the middle item and you will be taken to the symptom page

Symptom Page

I have updated this page to allow you to update as often as needed. REMEMBER, we want the symptoms when you took the uBiome sample (NOT YOUR CURRENT SYMPTOMS!).


Just check the symptoms that you had. At the bottom of the page click Update


My Symptom is not there!

If you are missing a symptoms, go to the menu and pick Symptoms List.

If you are ‘logged in’ you may add symptoms. Please make sure that you check the list carefully first.


Once the symptom is added, you can return to the “Select Sample to Use” page and then click to update your symptoms.  The new symptom should be there.


The login above, “” with sample Id “999999” was created as a composite from uploads available when I did this post. Feel free to try it to get a feel of the site before you do an upload.
