We have all seen cases where a sexy research paper gets attention from the mainstream media. Often this results in oversimplifications of the results and overdrawn conclusions, while not providing a direct link to the original paper.
Now imagine that you have actually read this sexy paper.
Now imagine that the research has some serious issues.
Now imagine that the last author is a famous professor.
Will you devote a blog entry to this paper or not?

“The assembly of an infant gut microbiome framed against healthy human adults ”
“Here we present how a new born human gut microbial community develops from resembling the delivery method (vaginal) to look like, after almost 3 years of life, the one of an adult. This trajectory is created from the data published by Koenig JE et al. 2011 framed around the data generated by the Human Microbiome Project (HMP).”
