In today’s digest read about the Darobactin (a new antibiotic that selectively kills Gram-negative pathogens by binding to the BamA protein, located in the external membrane of Gram-negative bacteria), temporal stability of the rumen microbiota, and Gardnerella species (Gardnerella leopoldii, G. swidsinskii, G. piotii, and G. vaginalis) in the vaginal microbiome. And, check out 2019 Holiday Gift Guide For Microbe Lovers. Happy weekend!
