Das hätte ich schon in der Schule lernen wollen

Ob Probiotics, die letzte Epidemie oder das Boome - hier kann man endlich verstehen, was täglich in der Zeitung steht und was in der Schule fehlt!

Great stuff

Talk show on microbiology. Hosts are specialists on the matter and great to listen to. This is not only for scientists but for anyone interested in bugs

its great, please keep on discussing!
