Good morning from New Jersey! Only a few new research articles to share with you today, but FOUR new reviews on the microbiome’s role in cancers and periodontal disease. And if you’re feeling adventurous, PLOS ONE just published an article on human postmortem decomposition that includes a brief evaluation of the buried corpse microbiome.

Jobs

A new postdoctoral position was just posted at the University of Minnesota for research on new methods of fecal microbiota transplantation.
