Spit for Science and Nose Pick for Progress: The Human Microbiome Comes Alive at Forsyth

Join Forsyth microbiologists to learn about the bacteria that live on your body. Over 700 types of “bugs” are found in human mouths!

Attendees will have a chance to take bacteria from their mouth and nose and see their own microbiome. Forsyth will also showcase its one-of-a kind technique that creates high-resolution maps of bacterial “forests.”

Finally, by nose picking for progress, attendees will have the opportunity to contribute to what could become the world’s largest database of nasal bacteria!

Cost: Free. Drop-in.
