Greetings!!
Congratulations to the Nobel prize winners in Chemistry : Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer A. Doudna for the discovery of “Genetic scissors: a tool for rewriting the code of life- the CRISPR/Cas9 genetic scissors.” Today’s brief digest covers a wide range of articles on early life microbiome to respiratory microbiome. Happy reading!!!
