Hyvää Päivää from Helsinki, Finland ! Today’s digest contains a variety of interesting papers,in particular for people interested in viromes. The digest contains a really interesting preprint on the diversity of four new Antarctic sea ice bacteriophages, demonstrating their uniqueness and novelty compared to previoulsy characterized phages.
For people interested in bacterial microbiome, this digest contains a lot of very interesting pieces, in particular a very interesting review on the hopes and current limitation of Fecal Microbial Transplants in clinical settings.
Finally, today’s non-microbiology pick is a piece exploring the social impacts of naming diseases using strong-held but flawed names like German measles,
Have a great Weekend!
