Come hear this fascinating talk by BwoB member Danny Chan!
In the 1800's scientists began to provide evidence supporting the idea that microscopic organisms could cause disease. Since then, we have described a great diversity of interactions between humans and the microscopic life that lives on and in our bodies. One type of microbe, the bacteria, are now commonly known to participate not only in disease processes but also in healthy functioning. Join us for a discussion through various examples of how bacterial genes can help or harm our bodies and how our own genes participate in these processes.
