Paper of interest: Microbiology of asthma

Very useful review paper came out this week discussing the microbiology of asthma.  Thanks to David Thaler for pointing this one out.  The review discusses the role of microbes in both the development and prevention of asthma.  While not explicitly concerned with the built environment, the “hygiene hypothesis” has obvious implications for the indoor microbiome.
