We’ve added a handful of new stories about the tiny species in our daily lives, contributed by top-notch scientists and writers including:
- Rachel Adams on the pink stuff growing in your shower: Rhodotorula mucilaginosa
- Peter Andrey Smith on the bacteria that make sushi more nutritious to some people than others: Bacteroides plebeius
- Sean Gibbons on the bacteria that can seemingly do everything, right in your belly hole: Rhodopseudomonas palustris
- Holly Bik on the round worms in your tap water: Nematodes
- Richard Conniff on the skin bacteria gone bad: Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
We’ll continue to add new chapters in the coming weeks and ultimately will publish a compilation of the pieces as an iBook. Stay tuned!
