Sites we recommend from around the Web

The Human Microbiome

This is a beautifully well done site, providing a general introduction to many aspects of the human microbiome. We highly recommend it. The site was developed by the Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah with funding from The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Bravo!


Gutcheck-The Microbiome Game

Want to have a little educational fun? Gut check was designed by a gamer and a scientist! Keep your microbiome healthy; get your opponents sick. Probiotics, Antibiotics, Plague, Fecal Transplants! Oh my! What kid wouldn't like to play the Fecal Transplant card, we ask?


Speaker for the Microbes

Emma Allen-Vercoe gives a wonderful talk on behalf of your microbes. The straight poop, so to speak. Great science plus puns. Microbiome science supported through generous donations! What would your microbes say if they could speak? Find out.
