Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation of Microbiome to Disease via Relative Abundance Found in Microbiome Sequencing [ Time Frame: One year ]
    Relative abundance of bacterial classes within taxonomic phyla and, more broadly, within their domain will be analyzed by sequencing the gut microbiome. These data will then be categorized among specific gastrointestinal disease types.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Validation of Sequencing Methods [ Time Frame: One year ]
    To validate the methods used to sequence samples


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Stool Samples
