Have a nice weekend! Today, in this (late) Digest: articles about gut microbiome and COVID19 and neurological disorders, as well as other studies with skin, respiratory and vaginal microbiomes. We have also: wine microbiome, rumen eukaryotome, hydrocarbon degraders, some bioinformatic pipelines and more!
