An exciting fellowship in Ireland, along with some interesting techniques in today’s digest!

Events and jobs
APEX (APC Postdoctoral EXcellence) Fellowship – Ireland
Fellowships will be offered in the four thematic APC research areas of ‘Microbes to Molecules’, ‘Diet and Microbes at the Extremes of Life’, ‘Brain-Gut-Microbiota Axis’ and ‘Host-Microbe Dialogue’. Adhering to the MSCA principle of ‘individual-driven mobility’.
