Probable Meets Possible: Learning to speak microbe
Wednesday | November 18, 2020 | 4:00 pm–5:00 pmFree
Microbes exist in communities just like us and, just like us, they communicate. As scientists come to better understand how they communicate, they are identifying ways to alter that communication to create alternatives to antibiotics, prevent corrosion and much more. Join us for a wide-ranging conversation with Mikael Elias and Will Harcombe about the ability of microbes to communicate, the effects of communication on their environment and human health, and recent and future advances in the understanding of the numerous microbial languages.
