Today’s microbiome digest featuring the milestones in the human microbiota research along with a very interesting stochastic model to explain microbiome composition in host organisms and a review focusing on the effect of antipsychotic medications on the microbiome and weight gain. Additionally, there are some interesting studies from animal microbiome/animal experiments section such as the role of rumen microbiota in altering average daily gain and feed efficiency and microbiome of deposit feeder Capitella teleta. Enjoy reading.
