It may sound gross, but it's all something that we live with each and every day. Humans emit their own, personal microbial cloud as they interact with the world around them, releasing bacteria and other microbes as they breathe out, wave and move.
Scientists have released the "tree of life" for a staggering 2.3 million named species of animals, plants, fungi and microbes.
Scientists have uncovered evidence of ancient life deep below the seafloor. Researchers have uncovered evidence of microbial life from drilled rocks samples of the Earth's mantle.
Antarctica may not be as barren as we thought, which could mean there's hope for finding life on other, seemingly-inhospitable planets.
Could antibiotics improve the symptoms of autism? For the son of John Rodakis, it seemed to be the case.
Two miles below the surface of the ocean, a strange species of microbes thrives. Now, scientists have learned a bit more about these new microbes that "breathe" sulfate.
Scientists have discovered that our natural gut microbes may just influence the blood-brain barrier, which protects the brain from harmful substances in the blood. The findings reveal that gut microbiota can impact brain development and function.
It turns out that microscopic organisms may just be able to create dripstones in caves. The new findings reveal how biological life can influence the formation of Earth's geology, and may mean that the same could happen on other planets.
It turns out that even if a man and a woman eat the same thing, they'll react differently. Scientists have discovered that the microbes living in the guts of males of females have different reactions to the same diet.
Scientists are concerned that micro-organisms from Earth could potentially contaminate and invade Mars, surviving even under the harsh environmental conditions.
It turns out that there may be a reason that city dwellers of lower socioeconomic status are more prone to asthma, allergies and other chronic inflammatory disorders. Researchers have found that it could be due in part to their reduced exposure to microbes that thrive in rural environments.
Although only less than one percent of bacteria are harmful, humans are still fall ill with bacterial infections fairly often. Additionally, some bacteria are helpful and participate in various bodily functions. A new study has shown how water can assist in helping bacteria in the body.
