Greetings from Western New York! This is my first post to Microbiome Digest and I hope it turns out well as I have been busy trying to learn the nuances of publishing on WordPress over the past few months. As a retired Ophthalmologist with a Laboratory Medicine background and research studies in Microbiology I have a distinct affinity for microbiome-related research as it pertains to dysbiosis and pathogenesis. I have included some interesting articles on the association of the microbiome in gallstone disease, gastric and esophageal cancers as well as in HPV cancers. There is also a brief news article pertaining to handwashing of significance in the COVID-19 world we are currently living in. Stay safe and enjoy!

  1. Again great stuff, bioinformatics article looks great.Topic of interest especially novel, and addressing a problem which is rapidly encroaching: how to deal with such large amounts of data. Microbiota has such a sheer complexity that software will need to be developed not only to handle and store such data, but even perhaps implement AI for identifying patterns in variations of the microbiota. Great work again bringing these to your readers’ attention
