I Contain Multitudes - Bacteria on and Around Us
Bacteria play both beneficial and harmful roles in our world. Using the book “I Contain Multitudes” by Ed Yong, this course provides general knowledge and current research about how these bacteria (the microbiome) impact animals, humans and their health, and even our homes. Specific topics include how scientists currently study the microbiome, how bacteria are beneficial to their animal hosts and how they can become harmful, and approaches to modulating the number and type of bacteria present in an animal host. Dr. Rebecca Pollet received a Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina in 2016 and is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Microbiology Department at the UM where she works on the human microbiome.
