April 13, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until April 15, 2018


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!
