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.”
