One event on 21st October 2018 at 11:00am


Look who’s coming to dinner. And to the bathroom. And to the kitchen… Some house guests just don’t know when to leave, and thankfully, the organisms that live in your body are no exception.

Explore the eclectic microbial world within you, listening to their DNA signatures, taking microbiology “selfies” that will become part of a giant Petri dish artwork, open your eyes to other-worldly views of real microbes and sink beneath the biofilm on a virtual reality tour.
