Today’s digest features a 30-color colorblind friendly color palette and functions for mapping color to hierarchical/nested data, ecosystem-specific reference databases, stoma samples for a very effective way of small intestinal microbiome characterization, and a reminder that 16S rRNA gene sequencing is NOT metagenomics. Happy Friday!
Join the next #MVIF when Sarah Lebeer will talk about citizen science and vaginal microbiome!!
