In the midst of the festive season have a fiesta with the recent articles on Microbiome. Todays MicroBiome Digest covers the Techniques and Treatments, Drugs, Immunostimulatory Diet and Nutrition, Multivariate Count Data Model, Antimicrobials, Pre/Pro-biotcs, Host-Microbe Interactions, Genes, Genomics and Pathways of Microbiota, Infant Microbiome, Animal Models, Animal Microbiome, Microbial Ecology of plant and soil. Happy Reading!!!
