Happy Monday! Today’s Microbiome Digest is chock-full. You’ll find: a review of approaches towards predictive microbial ecology, insights into function gleaned from rumen metatranscriptomics, diet studies in hunter-gatherers and mice, characterization of the mosquito and termite microbiota, the wild side of plant microbiomes, fermentation for traditional liquors, and much more!
