Illustration of the complex microbial communities of
the skin. This includes viruses!
If you have been keeping up with previous posts, you have noticed that this has been a busy time on my end, and unfortunately blogging has had to take a back seat. I defended my doctoral thesis, earned my PhD, moved to a different University, and started a new position as a postdoctoral research fellow with Pat Schloss. Even though this has resulted in some busy weeks, these have been wonderful events and I am really fortunate to be going through this. Although these events are blog-worthy, I wanted to spend this week discussing one of our recent major publications about the skin virome.
