Contribution to Microbiome Exhibit in Pacific Science Center

Current Exhibit

Meet Your Microbes! June 2015 – December 2015

There are trillions of organisms living in and on your body. And it’s OK. In Meet your Microbes! learn about the microscopic organisms that help you digest food, process vitamins, protect you from infection or even, sometimes, make you sick.

Local researchers and physicians are working together to figure out what these little guys are doing and how we can help them help us. In Meet Your Microbes! guess where different microbes live on your body, how many live inside you, and how much they weigh. Zoom in on your microbes to see how big they really are.
