To all the work-from-home researchers (like me!), today’s digest covers microbiome in memory recognition, enteric neuropathy and neurodevelopmental disorder in rodent models. Gut microbiome in cardiovascular disease, a dual mechanism antibiotic and shifts in human gut microbiome and metabolome following gastric bypass. An important preprint that Covid-19 could not induce reinfection in infected rhesus macaques and that Ibuprofen may aggravate Covid-19 infection.
