Sorry for the late afternoon digest. We are in the midst of trying to get our lab back up and running! There are several interesting papers today, including a commentary on the holobiont model and the usefulness of integrating microbiome and GWAS data, the development of a “Microbiome-Derived Metabolism Screen” for personalized medicine published in Cell, and a paper investigating phylosymbiosis in the skin microbiome of fish. My non-microbiology pick is a urine sampling method to assess diet, which could be very useful to gut microbiome scientists.
