Microbes got their start in the ocean and are essential to maintaining its complex ecosystem. Like the ocean, humans also rely on our microscopic passengers to function normally. At birth, each of us was first colonized by our mother’s microbiome. Come join us to hear about the unique microbial communities that support and create life.
