Hello from snowy Lübeck,
today we have selected, among others, some papers about soil microbiota, associations of bacteria in healthy humans across different populations (in gut) and a couple of bioinformatic papers. Happy reading!

General microbiome

[REVIEW]Blautia—a new functional genus with potential probiotic properties? – Liu et al. – Gut Microbes

The sum is greater than the parts: exploiting microbial communities to achieve complex functions – Zaramela et al. – Current Opinion in Biotechnology

Pregnancy and early life

Influence of Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus iners and Gardnerella vaginalis on bacterial vaginal composition in pregnant women – Witkin et al. – Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics

Human gut microbiome

The faecal metabolome in COVID-19 patients is altered and associated with clinical features and gut microbes – Lv et al. – Analytica Chimica Acta

Bacterial associations in the healthy human gut microbiome across populations – Loftus, Hassouneh & Yooseph – Scientific Reports

The Pre‐treatment Gut Microbiome is Associated with Lack of Response to Methotrexate in New Onset Rheumatoid Arthritis – Artacho et al. – Arthitis & Rheumatology

Animal experiments (mouse/rat experiments, chickens/pigs on different diets)

Antibiotic-associated dysbiosis affects the ability of the gut microbiota to control intestinal inflammation upon fecal microbiota transplantation in experimental colitis models – Strati et al. – Microbiome

Black Current Anthocyanins Improve Lipid Metabolism and Modulate Gut Microbiota in High‐Fat Diet‐Induced Obese Mice – Song et al. – Molecular Nutrition & Food Research

Animal microbiome (for animals in the wild)

Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) as a novel model to study the relationship between the avian microbiome and microbial endocrinology-based host-microbe interactions – Lyte et al. – Microbiome

Plant, root, and soil microbiome

Impacts of earthworm introduction and cadmium on microbial communities composition and function in soil – Ren et al. – Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology

Tree‐induced alterations to soil properties and rhizoplane‐associated bacteria following 23 years in a common garden – Yates et al. – Plant and Soil

Influence of imidacloprid on bacterial community diversity of mango orchard soil assessed through 16S rRNA sequencing-based metagenomic analysis – Garg et al. – Environmental Monitoring and Assessment

Bioinformatics

[PREPRINT]Multi-Block Sparse Functional Principal Components Analysis for Longitudinal Microbiome Multi-Omics Data – Jiang et al. – arXiv.org

Model-based microbiome data ordination: A variational approximation approach – Zeng, Zhao & Wang – Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics
