cUriOus: Buildings Have Microbiomes, Too!
We've been hearing for a while now about the importance of the microbiome within each of us, the collection of bacteria and other living things inside us that help us stay healthy.
If you stop and think for a moment, you realize microorganisms are all around us. So buildings have microbiomes, too.
The Biology and the Built Environment Center (BioBE) at the University of Oregon studies that microbiome. Dr. Suzanne Ishaq is right in the middle of the work. She visits with highlights in this month's edition of our ongoing project with UO, called Curious: Research Meets Radio.
