Good morning!

Today’s digest is fairly light, with just a few preprints, so I’d like to do something a bit different today! If you have a recent microbiome-related publication (or have read one that’s particularly exciting) send me a direct message on Twitter (@KaraAnnTinker) or comment on this blog post. If it hasn’t been included on the blog yet, I’ll either update today’s post or cover it on my next blog post later this week.

General microbiome

Preprint: Sulfate adenylyl transferase kinetics and mechanisms of metabolic inhibitors of microbial sulfate respiration – Carlson et al. – bioRxiv

Preprint: Paraburkholderia edwinii protects Aspergillus sp. from phenazines by acting as a toxin sponge – Dahlstrom and Newman – bioRxiv

Plant, root, and soil microbiome

Preprint: Strain diversity of plant-associated Lactiplantibacillus plantarum – Yu et al. – bioRxiv

Water and extremophile microbiome

Preprint: Microbial helpers allow cyanobacteria to thrive in ferruginous waters – Szeinbaum et al. – bioRxiv
