Good morning everyone!

In today’s microbiome digest, we can learn more about the influence of host genetics on the gut microbiome from the research by Laura et. al., and a perspective by Liliana et. al. Also, this digest contains interesting methods/tools/pipelines such as a Robust covariance estimation method by Yong He et. Al., a new pipeline for structural characterization and classification of RNA-Seq microbiome data by Racedo et. Al, and a k-mer based tool ‘kASA’ for taxonomic analysis of metagenomic data.

Enjoy reading. Happy Sunday.
