Summary

What they did: Over a 4-year period, Ami Bhatt of Stanford and her colleagues collected large amounts of microbiome data from humans, animals and the environment and sequenced their DNA, they report in a study published Thursday in the journal Cell.What they found: They discovered more than 4,000 protein families, 90% of which have no known function and almost half have not been previously catalogued.What they're saying: Nicola Segata, associate professor and principal investigator at University of Trento's Centre for Integrative Biology, tells Axios the study offers a first, "crucial step" but "it is premature to speculate on whether and how this discovery will be relevant for future therapies."Gender-neutral pronouns reduce biases (Ian Sample — The Guardian)Pediatricians warn racism has devastating effects on children (William Wan — Washington Post)A vicious disease is wiping out China's pig population (Chris Baraniuk — OneZero)A tale of elephants, ants, trees and fire shows how complex nature is (The Economist)About 773,000 years ago, Earth's magnetic north and south poles reversed — a complex process that took about 22,000 years, according to new research.The big picture: Throughout our planet's history, the poles have flipped every several hundred thousand years or so.
