We begin this edition of our newsletter with a new study that provides clues as to how the gut microbiome influences the host’s ability to metabolize medical drugs by using an experimental and computational methodology. You will also find a new article that explores how maternal and infant factors are associated with milk microbiota composition in nearly 400 mothers.
Next up, a recent study shows that not all fermentable fibers work in the same way in terms of their capacity to stimulate SCFA production. Finally, a new review updates the composition and physiological relevance of diverse and complex communities of bacterial viruses that colonize the human gastrointestinal tract.
