Good Morning! Highlights of today’s digest include a promising probiotic effect of Lactobaccillus helveticus on acute liver failure as shown in an animal model study. Findings from another study about soil sterilization and how it leads to healthier soil microbiome and plant growth by modulating promotion of plant and beneficial microbes associations. Finally, check out an investigation aiming to generate a standardized approach for microbiome profiling by evaluating a series of hypervariable regions of 16S gene and estimating community richness across diverse sample types. Many review articles are also posted. Enjoy!
