Today’s Digest features new insights into the microbial communities associated with shisha (water pipe), microbial mats, and tropical marine ecosystems. In addition, there are some new techniques and benchmarks to read about, including domain intelligible models for mining ‘omics data and the potential of giant viruses to introduce errors into metagenomic binning. I also highlighted […]
