However, he and other similarly minded experts are ready to delve into the intricacies of which microorganisms are responsible for what odors and the tough consequences that may be associated with those strong smells-judging from their formal and informal odor-information swap during the symposium, "Odors in Microbiology: Human and Animals," that was convened at the 109th ASM General Meeting, held last May in Philadelphia, Pa. Thus, the microbially generated odor outlook is changing not only in terms of bad breath from the mouth and other anatomic sites, but also in terms of strong smells from farms.
