A lyrical voyage through the microbiome
We are not alone. We share our lives, our food, and our friends with trillions of bacterial beings. More bacterial cells live in the human body than there are stars in this galaxy. Yet we are now starting to explore this wild microworld and barely beginning to understand how it affects our health and well-being. Join us in a voyage through bacterial discovery. Who are they? How do we study them? Why should we be interested in learning more about them? Also, we will sing songs about them.
