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