Good morning! A relatively short collection of articles to share with you today—highlights include a human microbiome study that evaluated disease markers in more than 3,000 subjects, a study of emerging antibiotic resistance in melting Alaskan permafrost, and a preprint that found multiple immune responses typically associated with the microbiome may actually be more closely linked to viruses.

Human gut microbiome

Health and disease markers correlate with gut microbiome composition across thousands of people, Ohad Manor et al., Nature Communications

Newly Explored Faecalibacterium Diversity Is Connected to Age, Lifestyle, Geography, and Disease, Francesca De Filippis et al., Current Biology

Preprint: Extraintestinal pathogenic (ExPEC) lineages explain prolonged faecal carriage of travel-acquired extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli, Boas CL van der Putten et al., bioRxiv

Intestinal microbiology shapes population health impacts of diet and lifestyle risk exposures in Torres Strait Islander communities, Fredrick M Mobegi et al., eLife

Animal experiments

A longitudinal study reveals the alterations of the Microtus fortis colonic microbiota during the natural resistance to Schistosoma japonicum infection, Du Zhang et al., Experimental Parasitology

Animal microbiome

Seasonal variation in the gut microbiota of rhesus macaques inhabiting limestone forests of southwest Guangxi, China, Yuhui Li et al., Archives of Microbiology

Preprint: Persistence of the ground beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae) microbiome to diet manipulation, Anita Silver et al., bioRxiv

Plant, root, and soil microbiome

Preprint: Unearthing the Boreal Soil Resistome Associated with Permafrost Thaw, Haan and Drown, bioRxiv

Phages and viruses

Preprint: Enteric viruses evoke broad host immune responses resembling bacterial microbiome, Simone Dallari et al., bioRxiv
