Good morning, everyone! Finally, the microbiome digest is ready after a long break.

In today’s digest, there are several interesting research articles to read specifically from two main sections Gut microbiome and Animal microbiome/Animal experiments. A few of them are highlighted as follows: 1) Use of machine learning approaches to mine functional peptides from metagenomic datasets; 2) An ultimate effort to mine host-microbiome protein-protein interactions which are mostly unexplored to understand mechanistic links with a variety of diseases; 3) Important role of mucosa-associated fungi with host-protective immunity and epithelial barrier function; 4) A fantastic review article summarizes gut microbial regulation of host 5-HT and 5-HT-mediated gut functions and its implications in the microbiota-gut-brain axis; 5) Another study showed; how gut microbiota regulates specific features of microglia from aged mice; 6) A method named MAGISTA to assess intra-bin statistics of metagenome-assembled genomes.

Enjoy reading. Happy Sunday.
