Abstract :

Objectives Universal stool banks provide stool to physicians for use in treating recurrent Clostridioides difficile infection via fecal microbiota transplantation. Stool donors providing the material are rigorously screened for diseases and disorders with a potential microbiome etiology, and they are likely healthier than the controls in most microbiome datasets. 16S rRNA sequencing was performed on samples from a selection of stool donors at a large stool bank, OpenBiome, to characterize their gut microbial community and to compare samples across different timepoints and sequencing runs. Data description 16S rRNA sequencing was performed on 200 samples derived from 170 unique stool donations from 86 unique donors. Samples were sequenced on 11 different sequencing runs. We are making this data available because rigorously screened, likely very healthy stool donors may be useful for characterizing and understanding microbial community differences across different populations and will help shed light into the how the microbiome community promotes health and disease.
