BMC Series Focus Issue

Gut microbiome and digestive health

To commemorate World Digestive Health Day that is celebrated annually on 29th of May, this month we focus on Gut microbiome and digestive health. Here is a selection of manuscripts from different BMC Series Journals focusing on either gut microbiome or on digestive health in insects, animals and humans.
