Happy Friday! Read on for insights into the relationship between the oral microbiome and taste perception, how earthworms interact with pathogens during vermicomposting, the use of phages against drug resistant bacterial pathogens, and how microbiota depletion affects brown adipose tissue thermogenesis. Plus, two new techniques for shotgun metagenomes.
