Hello from Luebeck! Today we selected among others maternal obesity and neurodevelopment, infant growth, breastfeeding and c-section, dental microbiome, gut microbiome and diseases/cancer, a couple of animal and plant microbiome studies. Of particular interest is a study diet and problem solving in a bird species (Parus major).
