It is now well accepted that the microbes that live upon and within us play a considerable role in our body’s physiology. In cancer, rapidly emerging evidence suggests that the microbiome influences disease progression in a myriad of direct and indirect ways. In this listicle, we look at recent research developments directed towards exploring the emerging
