September 1, 2018

Have a nice weekend! Today, several reviews about different aspects of human genome (from Vitamin D to the Impact of Colonialism in the changes of health in Indigenous people). Today, we have also several studies about poultry microbiome and changes in food microbiota, in addition with interesting studies about microbiota drug metabolism.
