Vote for the best microbiome papers of 2016

(post updated December 28 with some good additions suggested by voters – thank you all!

(Post open till Friday 30 December)

It’s the end of another year chockfull of microbiome papers, and I’ve seen them all! But which one do you think were the best? I’ll take nominations, and I will post the best 5 or 10 next week.

Here are some of 2016’s most discussed research papers to refresh your memories. I tried to pick a range of papers from different environments and hosts, including some very controversial ones. I also included a couple that were nominated through Twitter.

While I was going through the past Microbiome Digests from this year, I had many “Oh, yes, I forgot about that one” moments, and I hope you have those too! And, if you have not been keeping up with the literature this year, this will be a great list to start. So take a look at the list below, also think of papers I forgot to include, and vote of  your three favorite papers by using this form.

At the bottom of this post, you can vote for a maximum of three papers (unranked), and the paper(s) do not have to be on the list below. Yes, you may self-nominate (I did that too – see February). No, I will not misuse your email address!

  3. One person posted here: voting for “A Dietary Fiber-Deprived Gut Microbiota Degrades the Colonic Mucus Barrier and Enhances Pathogen Susceptibility – Mahesh S. Desai – Cell”

    I couldn’t pick one… I went through the list multiple times and there are just too many good ones. I might have an easier time picking out a favorite child 🙂
