Lay Summary: 

We are interested to learn more about the similar bacteria in the gut that seems to be familial (passed on from generation to generation). To study this we need to collect stool samples from relatives of the children and adolescents who are currently enrolled in the microbiome study and who will also provide stool sample. If you are participating in the Microbiome study or you are a sibling, parent, or grandparent of participant who has already consented to be a part of the main Microbiome study, you are invited to learn more about participation in this study.
