Good morning! Today we have a rather short reading list. One study links gut microbiome and COVID19. A second study shows the impact of the gut microbiome on the peripheral immune response. Additionally, two preprints were selected.
Human gut microbiome
Gut microbiota impact on the peripheral immune response in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease related hepatocellular carcinoma – Behary et al. – Nature Communications
Animal microbiome (for animals in the wild)
[PREPRINT]Alterations in gut microbiota linked to provenance, sex, and chronic wasting disease in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) – Minich et al. – bioRxiv
[PREPRINT]AncestralClust: Clustering of Divergent Nucleotide Sequences by Ancestral Sequence Reconstruction using Phylogenetic Trees – Pipes & Nielsen – bioRxiv
