Gut microbiota in a Belgian nursing home,  aspirin and antibiotics, and Enterococcus in fecal samples of wild marine species. Please note that the next couple of days won’t leave me much time to run literature searches after work-hours. I might publish less and shorter posts, but I hope to be back soon!
