We're All a Bag of Germs
For each one of the 10 trillion cells in the human body, there are ten other cells living in or on us. Dr. John Kloetzel, biology professor, will share what kinds of cells they are, what they do for us, and whether many of them are harmful. He will discuss recent advances in gene sequencing technology that offer new insight into these issues, and ongoing research highlighting how important our intestinal bacteria are to our health and well-being.
John Kloetzel taught university-level biology for 37 years. His research in cell biology employed methods ranging from electron microscopy to molecular techniques such as gene sequencing. He is past-president of the Chesapeake Society for Microscopy and the International Society of Protistologists.
