Greetings from Pittsburgh!

Saturday and Sunday’s digests were packed full of great articles, which means the week is off to a slower start than usual. We’ve got two environmentally focused preprints that I am super excited about, a paper demonstrating how microbiota can be dosed in order to help mice mitigate intestinal cancer and inflammation, and a paper focused on the eco-thermodynamics of methanogenic bioprocesses. Enjoy!

Animal experiments

Microbiota from alginate oligosaccharide-dosed mice successfully mitigated small intestinal mucositis – Zhang et al. – Microbiome

Water and extremophile microbiome

Preprint: Distinct microbial communities along the chronic oil pollution continuum of the Persian Gulf converge with oil spill accidents – Somee et al. – BioRxiv

Catabolism and interactions of uncultured organisms shaped by eco-thermodynamics in methanogenic bioprocesses – Nobu et al. – Microbiome

Preprint: Freshwater monitoring by nanopore sequencing – Urban et al. – bioRxiv
