In today’s digest you can read: about advantages of Atomic Force Microscopy in studying of oral microbiota in the paper by S. S. Salavadhi; about gut microbiome association with Type 1 diabetes in the paper by J.A. Mullaney; about influence of steroids on the gut microbiota in the review by M.J Tetel and about the ability of Synechococcus cyanobacteria to dynamically change their pigment content to match the ambient light color, in the paper by T. Grébert. These are of course just a few of many interesting articles today. Enjoy!
