Monday’s morning digest is all about interesting updates in microbiome field – real time sampling of international travelers to study antibiotic resistant bacteria, new techniques on using rectal swabs instead of fecal samples to study infant microbiota, 16srRNA gene sequencing for strain level identification and if neutraceutical consumption helps in multiple sclerosis! Finally some interesting review articles on microbial ecology in wine making and a Movember month featured article on association of gut microbiome with men’s sexual health. Enjoy reading!
