Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Ulcerative colitius
The method used to identify the microbes in the sample was chosen because it had the potential to provide more exhaustive identification of the bacteria present in the sample as compared to culturing methodology.
Procedure: molecular analysis
bowel disease

Detailed Description:

The method used to identify the microbes in the sample was chosen because it had the potential to provide more exhaustive identification of the bacteria present in the sample as compared to culturing methodology. The molecular method worked well, so it is appropriate to share the method with the medical and scientific communities.
