An early life focus today: Interesting papers on the effects of a pre-term cesarian birth on the gut microbiome and the impact of the infant gut microbiome on food allergies. Also highlighted, the relationship between the gut microbiome and social stress vulnerability in mice, the role of the gut microbiome in mosquito development, and evidence of a permanent transfer of prokaryotic virus sequences to the mammalian brain.

  1. I was really excited to see a new Davis et al. paper but the one highlighted here (Identification of Oligosaccharides in Feces of Breast-fed Infants and Their Correlation with the Gut Microbial Community) is from 2016.
