I will be traveling in the next 2 weeks, so The Digest might not come out every day, but I will try to keep my best to post as often as I can. Also, NCBI’s PubMed email alerts have not been coming out daily in the last week, and when they arrive they contain 70+ papers. Today I did not get any, so I have a very small digest:
