NDSU researcher’s paper published in Nature Reviews Microbiology

A research paper by Samiran Banerjee, NDSU assistant professor of Microbiological Sciences and co-author Marcel G. A. van der Heijden, professor at the University of Zurich entitled “Soil microbiomes and one health” was published in the August 23, 2022, edition of the journal Nature Reviews Microbiology. 
Using the concept of one health--the idea that describes how human health is connected to the health of animals, plants and environments--the paper postulates that soil, plant and human microbiomes are more interconnected than previously thought. The authors detail how soils are a cornerstone of one health and serve as a source and reservoir of pathogens, beneficial microorganisms and the overall microbial diversity in a wide range of organisms and ecosystems.
Banerjee and van der Heijden’s paper has been shared by more than 1,000 individuals and currently has the highest Altmetric attention scores among similar age articles.
