Today’s digest features an overview of the “microbiota–nutrient metabolism–epigenetics” axis, a study on the human bile microbiota, an interesting selection of probiotics studies, and more. Check out the new Everything Hertz podcast episode “Improving the scientific poster”. Happy reading/listening!
