Good morning/afternoon y’all! today’s digest features some interesting-to-read genral biotech and ecology papers, as weel as the first gene catalouge of the vaginal microbiome, American pets microbiome revealed, cool microbiome engineering for biocontrol purpose in agriculture, a bunch of salt- and sweet-water microbiome studies and more!

Have a great weekend! put the guilt aside and enjoy some time with your spouse, family, pets, hobbies and anything else that you enjoy!
