Good morning everyone! 

Highlights of today’s microbiome digest include: 

  • A genome-wide association study showed an association between host genetic variants and the gut microbiome in the Chinese population.
  • Association of sugar intake with the gut microbiome composition in the Malmö Offspring Study.
  • Gut microbial changes in Holstein cows from birth to adulthood.
  •  Fecal microbiome and antimicrobial resistance profiles in healthy Australian foals.
  • A new method for the detection of functional potential from metagenomic sequences.
