  • Utopia Demonstration Video

    Dr. Peter D’Adamo and Dr. Tara Nayak present an introduction to Utopia, the free microbiome analysis add-on module to Opus 23 for uBiome test results.

     

    To use Utopia, you will need to  have your client’s 23andMe data already uploaded to Opus 23. You can then upload as many raw data files from uBiome tests as you have for that client. Utopia will work with individual uBiome tests, referencing the client’s 23andMe results where appropriate, and also give sequential analysis for multiple uBiome tests.

    The unique combination of Opus 23 and Utopia make this an opportunity for practitioners to get deep insight into their clients on both a genomic and a microbiological level, all sourced from published medical literature. The interaction between the two genomic analyses provides unparalleled informatics tools, and gives the practitioner an edge over any other genomic analysis tool available today.

    SPECTRUM: Visual community organization

    Utopia logo

    SPECTRUM provides a visual representation of the taxonomic data at both the genus and phylum levels. The app demonstrates the weight, influence and diversity of your client’s microbiome in two helpful display formats, each of which are clickable for a deeper look and easy report curation.

    Navigating  SPECTRUM

    From the Utopia drop down menu, hover over ‘analytics’ until a second list appears, then select SPECTRUM.  Phyla and genus are displayed in pie chart format, which is accompanied by the spectrum profiler found below.

    The pie charts follow the color-coding conventions found in OPUS23 indicating beneficial, neutral as well as pathogenic organisms. Click on any desired section to open up its information pop—up window for detailed information including taxonomy, an overview of known disease or health benefit associations, descendants and metabolomics. Click ‘add/ curate’ to include it in your client’s report.

    The spectrum profiler demonstrates the trends in your client’s biome diversity in a graphical format. Clicking on any of the category headings will open a pop-up window listing the organisms found in your client’s sample. Each genus listed is also clickable, opening a pop-up window for detailed information, including taxonomy, an overview of known disease or health benefit associations, descendants and metabolomics. Click ‘add/ curate’ to include it in your client’s report.

    Metabolomics is a powerful addition to the spectrum profiler that provides a comprehensive list of metabolites associated with GI biome species. A list of all metabolites active in your client is included. Click on an individual metabolite for detailed information, including genera that are enhanced, inhibited, and those which generate the metabolite as an end product. Click on the Metabolomics link to open a pop-up with all active and inactive genera.
