Contaminomics

To all of the microbial researchers out there, be careful about contaminants in your cultures, reagents, and equipment! Yes, we all are careful about good techniques and having proper controls. However, this article suggested that perhaps contaminants are surfacing much more in microbial related literature than we thought. This concept isn’t new, and the aforementioned article provides a good summary of the common culprits. Also, this article had a shoutout to Jonathan at the very end: “Apologies in advance to Jonathan Eisen for “contaminomics”. Don’t hit me.”
