Good morning everyone! In today’s microbiome digest, we have multiple research and review articles about the role of microbiome in various diseases including neurodevelopmental, biliary Cholangitis, obesity-associated CRC, bariatric surgery, atopic dermatitis, schizophrenia, respiratory tract infection and autoimmunity, and an independent section on Fecal Microbiota Transplantation. Enjoy reading.
