The Microbigal Mission


Bringing relevant science stories and news for the microbial enthused!

We provide fun, educational, and occasionally nerdy content to those who are affected by the microbial world (that's you - you are literally covered and filled with microbes and our history and future are full of ways

microbes impact EVERYTHING!)


We interpret complex scientific principles into easily digestible content via our  blogs about microbes and scientists that have changed the world, podcasts on pop culture and science, a microbiology career corner, and the first ever microbe university, where you too can learn all things about being a microbe:

 The Society of Symbionts!

Welcome to The Microbigal Nation, let's find your MICROBE MOMENT!
