Have a good weekend! Today, in this MB, we have interesting papers about different aspects of the microbiome. For example, we have a review overviewing the relationship between epigenetic changes, microbiome and metabolic diseases, as well as a paper focused in the use of a microbial metabolite in the prognosis of coronary issues. We have also the publication of an interesting study authored by the MB founder Elisabeth Bik.

There are also some papers about coral microbiome and an study about the homogenization of the microbiome between both US Air Force cadets and their built environment.
