Our understanding of the interaction between environment, microbiome, and disease processes has evolved rapidly in recent years. We’re increasingly aware that what we eat and where we live can have an effect on our microbiome, and that this in turn can affect our bodies. Early indications suggest that in disease processes, such as those of tumor formation and metastasis, the interactions between the microbiome and the body are likely to have important effects. Nevertheless, many of the details and mechanisms of these interactions are still unclear.
This collection invites submissions which shed more light on the interaction between cancers and the microbiome.
