Health Benefits of Micronutrients (Vitamins and Minerals) and their Associated Deficiency Diseases: A Systematic Review
The research focused on the benefits of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and their associated deficiency diseases and health complications. Micronutrients are essential elements required by
Interkingdom microbial consortia mechanisms to guide biotechnological applications
TLDR
Current understanding of microbial interaction mechanisms involved in sustaining or developing interkingdom consortia for biotechnological applications and future research directions to develop study methods at the level of metabolites, genes and meta‐omics are reviewed.

There are over 5,300 known mineral species; over 5,070 of these have been approved by the International Mineralogical Association (IMA). The silicate minerals compose over 90% of the Earth's crust.
Biophysical processes supporting the diversity of microbial life in soil
TLDR
This review explores key drivers for microbial life in soils under different climates and land-use practices at scales ranging from soil pores to landscapes and delineates special features of soil as a microbial habitat and the consequences for microbial communities.

THE GEOMICROBIOLOGY OF SUSPENDED AQUATIC FLOCS: LINKS BETWEEN MICROBIAL ECOLOGY, FE(III/II)-REDOX CYCLING, & TRACE ELEMENT BEHAVIOUR
TLDR
Results demonstrate that the organic rich nature of floc exerts an important control over TE geochemistry in aquatic environments, ultimately creating a distinct solid with differing controls over TE behavior than bed sediments in close proximity.
Mn(II)-oxidizing Bacteria are Abundant and Environmentally Relevant Members of Ferromanganese Deposits in Caves of the Upper Tennessee River Basin
TLDR
Combined data from geochemical analyses, molecular surveys, and culture-based experiments suggest that a unique consortia of Mn(II)-oxidizing bacteria are abundant and promoting biomineralization processes within the caves of the upper Tennessee River Basin.
