Today’s articles primarily focus on the human gut microbiome, with one paper finding that artificial sweeteners may not be as bad for the gut as we think, and a link between the gut microbiome and chronic kidney disease by Yang et al. Another great paper also involved the use of biocontrol strains in plants to reduce wheat disease. Enjoy!
