Comparison of microbiome pre and post transplant [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
We will analyze and compare the microbiome (bacterial populations) present pre- and post- transplant of the recipient. We will also analyze the microbiome of the donor and compare it to the donor microbiome pre- and post-FMT.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Pilot and Feasibility Study of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Ulcerative Colitis
Official Title  ICMJE A Pilot and Feasibility Study of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Ulcerative Colitis
Brief Summary The investigators are conducting an open-label study of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) for adult patients with mildly-moderately active ulcerative colitis. In this pilot study the investigators will evaluate the feasibility, safety, and tolerability of a single application of FMT delivered colonoscopically. The investigators will also characterize the impact of FMT on the microbiota of the recipient and determine if it correlates with the microbiota from the FMT donor.
