Good morning and a wonderful Sunday!
While you are eating your Sunday eggs and sipping your coffee, enjoy the small collection of microbiome et al. papers- exactly the right size for a Sunday morning.
Visit the microbial community living at Antarctic volcanoes with the preprint from Benda et al. or read the findings by Gibb et al. that indicate that human-managed ecosystems favor the presence of reservoirs of zoonotic diseases- very interesting in the light of the current pandemic. Enjoy!
