The aim of this project is to establish a bio-repository of diverse specimen types to provide
investigators access to specimens in order to further research related to metabolism and the
microbiome in the pediatric population.

Human microbial cell lines, stool and/or DNA and RNA will be collected from participants
10-18 years with a BMI greater than 95th percentile and their healthy siblings.

Specimens will be collected at 3 time points over a seven month period. Healthy siblings will
provide just one blood and stool sample. Samples will be maintained at the Duke Medical
Science Research Laboratory.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients of the Healthy Lifestyles Program at Duke for the care of children with
obesity, a sibling of a patient in the Healthy Lifestyles Program, or is a patient at
Duke Children's Primary Care.
