Whether the ratio is 1:1 or 10:1, the fact is that there are a lot of microbes in/on our body and they have many important effects on how we function.
This is excellent. Saved!
Though I'm not sure how much we can extrapolate from an in vitro study.
How unfortunate for those who think it's better to take vitamin A than get vaccinated!
Interesting, but it's risky to romanticize hunter-gatherer microbiomes too much without more data.
There are definitely some similar studies with other organisms. For example: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v465/n7296/abs/nature09074.html
I wonder if it's competition for resources or a direct antagonism.
Pretty sure I found some smut in my garden once, but it was either too mature or too intimidating for me to try eating it.
Sounds pretty tasty. I would try it.
I see two shades of yellow; is one of them unidentified?
Is the growth pinkish because the plate is red?
Subtitle: The Origins of Kombucha. or not :)
I'm tempted to go with Sheldon Cooper on the Big Bang Theory and say lichen, because then I'd get the benefits from both fungus and alga/cyanobacterium. Lichens are also pretty neat in their ability to break down infectious prions: http://www.microbeworld.org/podcasts/bacteriofiles/archives/974-bacteriofiles-micro-edition-45-partners-produce-prion-pulverizing-proteins But having Deinococcus radiodurans' ability to withstand radiation would be cool, or even just some kinds' of microbes ability to make my own vitamins/essential amino acids, heh.
Always nice to see a court side with science.
Good choice! It's a hard decision; there are so many microbes with awesome superpowers.
A lichen is a symbiosis between a fungus and a single-celled photosynthetic organism. If you could form a symbiosis with any other organism, which would you choose?
I support this cause!
Judging all probiotics based on a study of one may not be fair, but I am disinclined to trust anything from an "expert" who uses homeopathy.
That's exciting. Coursera is a good site.
Thanks! Glad to be here!
Thanks! Unfortunately I can't make it to the General Meeting this year because I will be moving that week.
Thanks, Chris! I would like to put them out weekly, but I don't know if I have the time at this point. Maybe if I find a co-host that would be more feasible. I am glad you find it helpful. Out of curiosity, what do you think the target audience for this sort of podcast is/should be?
Thanks! I agree: it's very interesting. I'm always fascinated to hear how much such small organisms affect us!
Thanks! I think you just about doubled my subscribers.
Thanks! I fixed it.
Thanks Chris! Glad to know you liked it. I found out how to embed audio right after I posted this, but unfortunately I think I can't edit it. I'll do better next time. Do you know if there's any way to embed links?
