Have a good Wednesday! Today, we have an interesting set of papers about the effect of different compounds on microbiota, as well the effect of some probiotics. We have also a paper about the use binding of  immunoglobulin A by gut microbiota commensals as a potential mechanism for stabilization; we have also papers about virome from urinary and female reproductive tracts, a study a multi-site study of maternal microbiota.
