How the Challenge Works.


Some Extraction Methods Cause an Over-Representation of Easy-To-Lyse Cells.

Ours Doesn’t

Extraction Challange Graph
Outdated microbial extraction methods under-represent hard-to-lyse microbes due to insufficient lysis methodology.

Why Should I Participate?

Receive free 16S sequencing

Receive free samples of the ZymoBIOMICS DNA Miniprep kit and Microbial Community Standard, as well as free targeted 16S sequencing.

Identify sources of bias

DNA extraction can have a major impact on the perceived microbial profile of a sample, potentially misleading interpretation. Test out the only microbial DNA extraction kit validated to be non-biased.
