Have a good Friday! Today’s Digest include a set of interesting reviews about the Hologenome concept, Clostridium difficile, the relation between microbiota and tuberculosis and microbiota transplantation. This digest also contains interesting articles about the use of dietary studies to control diet in microbiota studies, microbiome in cancer, microbiome and depression in rats and microbiome in soil from the Atacama’s desert.
