Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for fecal body odor ?

I have heard of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation therapy for maybe 10 years, always to do with gut disorders. The idea I guess, is to implant a stable gut microflora into a sufferer. It is not something I have regarded as a priority 'therapy' over the years, but slowly over time it sounds more feasible for gut disorders to do with gut dysbiosis. Here are 2 articles over the last few days which show fecal microbiome transplantation in a very good light. Personally I have always wondered if it would not be more appropriate to implant probiotics rather than fecal microbiota. However I am open to persuasion.

Science Daily article : Fecal microbiome transplant and C difficle cases

Daily Mail story : Doctors save toddler from killer infection by transplanting mother's faeces into his gut

I believe that 'gut dysbiosis' of some kind will often (perhaps always) be a part of the syndrome that makes up 'fecal body odor syndrome' (the other factor being genetics), so I have an interest in anything that helps with 'gut dysbiosis'

Update Aug 17 :
Genos is back with it's EXOME test

Note :
Exome/Genome testing may be better option than single gene testing.

See this post : link

Note : Genos Exome Testing.

Exome testing is almost the same price now as single gene testing. Also Genos is consumer friendly, which standard DNA labs are not.

So the blog offer to test solely for FMO3 is almost obsolete, and so no longer offered.

Does Genos fully sequence FMO3 gene ?

At the moment it is not clear, but hoped this will become clear over the next few months

Note : possible 'wild west' way of testing FMO3
Use an ancestry dna site and rummage through the raw data
