Greetings from Colorado. Today the Microbiome Digest brings you a variety of the latest microbiome-related publications including the human tumor microbiome by Nejman et al., microbial colonization in the neonatal gut microbiome by Wang and Dominguez-Bello, and drought effects on the millet root microbiome together with many more interesting papers. Enjoy.
