Microbes Rule the World - USA Science and Engineering Festival

The blog for the USA Science and Engineering Festival has a post about the importance of microbes and the expanding roles of microbiologists, plus it features two MicrobeWorld videos.

Snippet:

"The average science student knows that microbiology is the study of bacteria and other microorganisms, especially those that cause disease and other threats to health.

But what the public often does not realize is that the work of the microbiologist is growing ever more important today as such microorganisms are linked at an alarming rate to outbreaks of new infectious disease and food poisoning caused by bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli, in addition to the growing difficulty in treating infections due to antibiotic resistance. Microbiologists and their scientific tools are front-line defenders in the expanding battle against germs."
