Today we have  interesting reviews by Thomas S.B. about gut microbiome and by F. Newberry about microbiome and virome contribution to myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Another highlight for viruses is a commentary by Y.Z. Zhang on how metagenomics has changed our understanding of RNA viruses. Check these recommendations as well as many other articles in today’s digest.
