Good morning! Today there are not many papers, but there are two interesting highlights. The first being a COVID paper analysing the immunological profiles of patients, suggesting an immune-based therapeutic intervention may be the way to go. The second paper analysing the oral microbiome in oral cancer patients, showing significant alterations in diversity and specific genuses in these patients.



Immunological and inflammatory profiles in mild and severe cases of COVID-19. Song et al. Nature Communications.

Human microbiome

Animal microbiome

Potential of indigenous Bacillus spp. as probiotic feed supplements in an extruded low‐fish‐meal diet for juvenile olive flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus. Niu et al. Journal of the World Aquaculture Society.

Animal experiments

Glyphosate-based herbicides influence antioxidants, reproductive hormones and gut microbiome but not reproduction: A long-term experiment in an avian model. Ruuskanen et al. Environmental pollution.

Evidence of Microbiome-Drug Interactions Between the Antimalarial Lumefantrine and Gut Microbiota in Mice. Ippolito et al. The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

Plant, root and soil microbiome

The bacterial community and metabolome dynamics and their interactions modulate fermentation process of whole crop corn silage prepared with or without inoculants. Xu et al. Society for Applied Microbiology.

Water and extremophile microbiome
