It's Complicated: Our Evolving Relationship With the Microbial World In and Around Us

Petri Dish Event
Part of the Petri Dish series at Camp Bar this fall.

Our relationship to the microbial world in and around us is a bit fraught. From the rise and fall of antimicrobials to the growing popularity of probiotics, our perception of these tiny organisms that populate our soil, air, even our gut, is evolving. New discoveries about role they play in our health and the environment are creating even more ambiguity. Explore what we know and what we don’t about the vast invisible world under (and in!) our noses with computational biology expert Dan Knights, microbial ecologist Michael Sadowsky and geomicrobiologist Cara Santelli.
