BIO.Q 117 - Microbes & Society

(PEQ Science) Are microbes friends or foes? Since the emergence of humans on earth, a silent war has been fought between microbes and humans with no clear victor. Why do we fight this war? Are we healthier without them? Is it even possible to win? Do we want to win? We will explore these questions through examination of basic concepts in microbiology with emphasis on contemporary issues including beneficial and harmful aspects, such as emerging diseases, bioterrorism, bioremediation, and food microbiology.
