Today’s digest shows some great papers, with two highlights. The first being the value of a ketogenic diet on treating drug-resistant epilepsy in children, suggesting gut microbial dysbiosis is responsible for the drug resistance. the second is a thorough analysis of both the developing microbiota in goats using metagenomics and metatranscriptomics by Pan et al. Enjoy!
