July 5, 2018

Today’s microbiology picks have articles on sampling source effect on the gut microbial diversity, whether resistant starch in mothers could benefit the offsprings, protective role of the gut bacteria of firebugs, microbial community shift during different stages in anaerobic membrane bioreactor, NanoAmpli-Seq as well as articles from plant-root-soil microbiome. Precision medicine, genetics of social interaction and isolation, “ethics dumping ” among our non-microbiology picks.
