Hyvää Päivää from Helsinki, Finland ! Today’s digest contains quite a lot of different topics. If you are interested in marine microbiology and virology, I recommend taking a look at the paper by Gazitúa and collaborators. In this study they investigated the role of phages in shaping the metabolism metabolic networks along redox gradients associated with marine oxygen minimum zones. To do so, they investigated the phage contents in auxiliary metabolic genes involved in bacterial photosynthesis, central carbon metabolism, and nutrient cycling.
Today’s non-microbiology pick is a web-platform, called Sysrev, built to aid in systematic evidence reviews. Sysrev contains thousands of Findable, Accessible, Iteroperable and Reusable (FAIR) datasets from a large variety of disciplines.
Have a great Sunday!
