Today’s digest features the microbiomes of a XVIII century mummy (Krásna Hôrka, Slovakia), an interesting initiative out of Belgium (Disbiome, a database of microbiota-disease associations), exciting news from Kamagata lab about improved culturing of environmental samples, promising findings on gut bacteria byproduct that protects against Salmonella, and much more. Happy reading!
