Good Morning! Highlights of today’s digest include malaria parasite control by a symbiont: investigation of a host immune response and mosquito development in responds to the mosquito symbiont Asaia. On a relating note, please also check out Parasite Microbiome Project, which aims to provide interactive centralized platform and resources for researchers to dissect complex interactions between parasites, hosts and their respective microbiota. Finally, a plant-microbe interactions study aimed to define a core microbiota of wheat crop and a possibility to use certain microbial taxa for management of stripe rust, a widely occuring wheat leaf disease.
