The leaders of ten research universities/institutes pledge to report student and postdoc outcomes in biomedical research as the Coalition for Next Generation Life Science initiative, commensal fungi and their cell-wall mannans can functionally replace benefits of intestinal bacteria, a new cheese starter system with improved bacteriophage resistance and antimicrobial activity.
