Hello and welcome to our page on microbial news; these posts mainly deal with the current events in microbiology and the top microbiology news. We eloquently call this segment DA BOM which stands for Da Best Of Microbiology! This is the spot where the Microbigals and our partners put together the best microbiology articles of the month and give them to you in a fast, easily digestible bullet point format.

These articles cover a range from scientific papers to fellow bloggers' work to national and local news outlets. We try to bring you a story from the five biggest categories in microbiology. This includes extremophiles or those microbes that can live on the edge, medical microbiology and how it can affect our health, environmental microbiology, marine microbiology, microbial products such as medicine, and food and agriculture microbiology like alternatives to fertilizer.
