World Microbiome Day 2021
27 Jun 2021 |
On World Microbiome Day we celebrate all things microbe, all around the world and we introduce international microbiome researchers to the public to raise awareness of the vibrant and diverse world of microbes. Microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, viruses, archaea, etc) can be found everywhere in and on plants, animals, water, soil, food and humans. Within each of those habitats, microorganisms live together in communities called microbiomes. Microbiomes have an effect on (amongst others) human health; therefore, scientists are exploring how these communities of organisms co-exist with each other, with us and our environment.
