“Nature loves to hide” – a maxim attributed to Heraclitus (arguably Greece’s strangest philosopher and a man adored by modern mystics), but do those four words have any bearing on the world of nature as studied by 21st century scientists? For Biosortia founder Ross Youngs, the answer is a resounding, “yes.” Nature is full of secrets – and many are locked away in the microbiome. But now, argues Youngs, we have the means to more fully unlock the microbiome and apply the resulting knowledge to new medicines.
