Good morning everyone!
This post is written from lovely NYC, quite a distance from my hometown in Israel. If you’re working on microbial ecology in the city and care for a cup of coffee (on me!) and a rather interesting chat about science, entreprenurship and agriculture- please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org or just find me on Linkedin.
Today post will feature highly recommended podcast, a great antimicrobial resistance review paper, Cocaine effect on gut microbiota, some cool bioinformatics tools papers, fascinating animal microbiome studies and more.
Resources and Podcast
I’m a huge fan of the This Week in Microbiology podcast. On their 201 episode the team hosted Prof. Mark Martin (U of Puget Sound) with some great list of papers for 1st year undergrads- but it is a great opportunity to read about general concepts and direction in micrboiology. I truely enjoed both the episode and the recommended papers.
