Microbial Week is Going Strong, Baby!

Behind the scenes here at DSN things are frantic to bring you the very best of microbes. We got so much lined up this week that I am developing Carpal tunnel syndrome in my clicky finger. But you the readers are worth all the pain and suffering!

So as you peruse the posts of microbial week, what could be better than a little background music. Good Ol’ Kevin Z, DSN’s old whipping boy, over at the Other 95% has blessed us with a special song just for Microbial Week-O’ Bacteria.
