Today we have covered several interesting studies including the effect of drugs such as levofloxacin and penconazole, vitamin E, and raw potato starch on the microbiome composition. Microbial diversity of bharals (Pseudois nayaur) is also explored under wild and captive conditions. Additionally, researchers from Gordon’s group have investigated the interactions between therapeutic diet, microbiota development, and growth recovery. Hope readers will enjoy today’s digest.
