In Mostly Microbes, meet the myriad of microscopic organisms that usually escape our daily notice. They may be living in your intestines, on your eyelashes, in your garden, or even in acidic hot springs with 180 degree temperatures!
We will take a taxonomic approach and look at bacteria, archaea (bacteria-like organisms that live in extreme habitats like hot springs and deep sea vents), protists, fungi, microscopic animals and even viruses (technically not considered alive), how they are classified, and how they relate to each other. Our immune response to some of these most irritating organisms will also be examined.
If you want to discover what lives just out of sight, this is the science class for you!
