Good morning! Today’s digest includes a broad selection of interesting research. Particular highlights include a study in rats that found microbiota transplantation attenuated neuroinflammation, a human study on the dramatic microbiome effects of dietary glycans, and a new technique for using drones to collect dolphin microbiome samples.
