Pathogenic Yeast and Autism: Is the Mycobiome a Factor?

Tuesday evening I printed out a bunch of new articles to read that looked potentially interesting. I’ve so far made it through 2, and one of those did not disappoint. A brief seque:  I’ve probably mentioned this before, but because of my autism longevity…

Autism and the Microbiome: A Summary of What We Know Now

Two days ago, I spotted a short commentary[i] in the journal, International Journal of Molecular Sciences, from this past August, which really caught my attention. Here is why:  it was written by 3 researchers in the department of neurology at Rutgers University’s medical school…

Schizophrenia and the Mycobiome: A Pilot Study

I don’t often find articles of interest about organisms of the human biome other than bacteria, but yesterday, I came across one looking at the mycobiome in schizophrenia that is definitely worth writing about.  I’ve actually covered research by this research team in the…

The Transient Human Mycobiome

I read an abstract[i] a couple of weeks ago…and then reread it over and over again, thinking I must be misunderstanding it.  I then put it away for a bit, and pulled it out again today to see if it still said the same…

And yet MORE on the Yeast/IBD Connection

Back in September, I wrote about a summary I’d stumbled across describing the current state of research into the connection between the mycobiome and inflammatory bowel disease.  Then, just a few days ago, I put up a link [i]on my Biome Buzz Facebook page…

More on the Mycobiome and IBD

I just finished reading a great blog post[i] (by a post-doc scientist at the NIH) on the current state of research into the mycobiome and its effects on inflammatory bowel disease.  I learned several new things…and some things are just so important, they’re worth…

The Mycobiome, the Bacterial Microbiome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

An interesting piece of research[i] was present last week at a conference in Chicago.  Firstly, as I’ve talked about before on this blog, it’s important to remember that humans’ incredibly complex natural ecosystems have a mycobiome (native yeast population), just as we have a…

Interesting Bits and Pieces about the Mycobiome

I found a new article[i] yesterday on the mycobiome (yeast).  To sum it up – we know next-to-nothing about what comprises a healthy one.  🙂 There were a few very interesting items in it that deserve mention: I already knew that there were differences…

The Bacterial Microbiome, and Fish Tacos

Mostly when I think about what I want to be when I grow up, I wish I were a scientist.  Some days, it’s an CIA code breaker.  Some days it’s a musician in the New York Philharmonic.  But more often than not, I want…
