Today we have an interesting review discussing the best practices for performing a microbiome study by R. Knight, “Microbial wars” – a brief overview on microbial competition by M.A. Bauer. Check many other interesting papers, particularly “crowded” section of Soil microbes, while in news you can read how scientists tested bacteria’s power to boost broccoli growth in space. Enjoy!
