Excited to have two large anaerobic workstations installed in the lab, ready for the large-scale screening!
Northomics labs held a virtual Christmas Party to say goodbye to 2020. Lucky ones got microbiome T-shirts.
Can you believe 60K acetylated, and ~20K propionylated/succinylated gut microbial peptides!!!. The deeper we explore the closer we get to understand the #microbiome https://t.co/bOwxvFzY1v?amp=1
Congratulations to Dr. Leyuan Li for receiving the Faculty of Medicine Award of Excellence for Postdoctoral Studies for her outstanding work on the microbiome!

Welcome new members on board, Haonan in the Ph.D program and Sara as lab tech.
Congrates to Xu’s manuscript on Nature communication! Can you believe that over 31,000 protein lysine acetylations in the gut microbiome that are part of regulating the microbiome? Ref: Zhang X, Ning Z, Mayne J, Yang Y, Deeke SA, Walker K, Farnsworth CL, Stokes MP, Couture JF, Mack D, Stintzi A and Figeys D. Widespread protein lysine acetylation […]
New workhorse of Exploris 480 with FAIMS is flying NorthOmics lab. This is going to boost our throughput and scale of metaproteomics analysis.
Congrates to Zikai’s manuscript selected as the cover story on JASMS. Timing is everything, and so it seems for drug effects on the microbiome. This manuscruipt in #JASMS demonstrated that #metformin added during different periods of the growth phase of a #microbiome has distinct effects. https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/jasms.0c00054… Ref: Hao Z, Li L, Ning Z, Zhang X, […]
Everyday drugs act in surprising ways on the microbiome “Drugs should have two labels—one label for its effect on the host, and another for its effect on the microbiome.”–Dr. Daniel Figeys By Jessica Sinclair, Research Writer A study published today in the journal Microbiome reveals that some of the most commonly taken drugs and compounds can […]
