Greetings from Santiago, Chile! Today, in this Digest we have several reviews about microbiota and different conditions or interventions. We have also papers about the microbial evolution and its relationship with the host, the role of O-glycosylated mucus, the microbiome of neonates and the influence of probiotics, and more…
