Have a good Friday! Today was published a very interesting article about a longitudinal study using several tools (including microbiome analysis), finding several clinically actionable health discoveries and identified multiple molecular pathways associated with metabolic, cardiovascular and oncologic pathophysiology, in patients with type II diabetes. This article could represent an interesting contribution to precision medicine development.

In addition, this digest also contains papers about: the role of sphingolipids in symbiosis and gut health, the role of fecal microbiota transplantation in IBS relief, the stability of a probiotic strain in infants, and more…

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.
