Me, microbes & I.

You are covered in microbes – tiny living (and nearly-living) things so small that you can’t see them without a microscope – bacteria, viruses, fungi and much more. So take a mosey around the microbial world to meet a few of the microscopic friends, foes, fun guys (and fartmongers) you never knew you had.
