Microbiology

Crithidia fasciculate is a protist that lives in the gut of mosquitoes. Is it weird that I find crazy and fascinating?

It’s amazing to me that at some point our ability to see things with a regular microscope is stifled by the fact that light waves are too big.

90% of the ocean is below 5 degrees C.

There are bacteria that are killed by oxygen that live in the crevices around our teeth. (This one really makes me want to pay very close attention to my brushing.)

    I find all that stuff fascinating, too. Like viruses. And ants. And bee hair.
