Nematodes and their relationship with bacteria
Nematodes and their relationship with bacteria with Jacque Cilliers Doors open 7:15pm, talk starts at 8:00pm. Nematodes make up a significant fraction of all the known animal species on earth. They are found everywhere, even a kilometre below underground. Join me as I show you what they look like, how they multiply and how we can use them to our advantage. I’ll explain how they have developed co-evolutionary relationships with bacteria and why and what their bacterial partners get in return. We’ll look at how these same relationships exist in mice and, finally, in humans. Can humans really exist without bacteria? Jacque Cilliers has worked in pharmaceutical, animal vaccine and agricultural research. He is interested in biology, the psychology of self-improvement and education and has travelled around the world once, worked as a wedding photographer, and now he would like to share some of this knowledge - at least just a little!
