In Genome Biology this week: analysis of wild and cultivated peach genomes, Hi-C-based pipeline for assembling microbial genomes from metagenomic data, and more.

The researchers analyzed samples from 60 countries to find antimicrobial resistance gene levels correlated with economic, health, and environmental factors.

This Week in PNAS

In PNAS this week: methanogen ancestry, within-host human cytomegalovirus genetic diversity, and more.

The funding will be used to develop a platform to identify species and strains of bacteria that cannot be cultured or detected with standard methods.

While the study showed initial promise, further work will be necessary to clarify its performance for various clinical indications.

Two independent teams described potential roles for gut microbes, and the compounds they produce, in schizophrenia, depression, and mental quality of life.

This Week in Cell

In Cell this week:  factors that regulate the differentiation of T helper type 2, structural variants teased out from long-read sequenced human genomes, and more.

Two research groups have cultured and sequenced microbes in fecal samples from healthy volunteers, producing new reference genomes for hundreds of species.

With metagenomics, genomics, and other analyses, researchers saw a potential antifungal compound called cyphomycin produced by Streptomyces in an ant in Brazil.

About 77 percent of the species the researchers uncovered in a human microbiome study of more than 9,000 metagenomes had never before been described.
