Have a nice day! Before presenting the Digest for today, I want to highlight that in few hours the ISME-LatinAmerica 2021 meeting will start. Additionally, I also want to highlight a Call from the Institut Pasteur for the creation of new groups (applications available until next November 30). Now, enjoy this digest!
