Every animal, whether wasp or squid or human, is a teeming mass of microbes--an entire world, a thriving ecosystem. These microscopic companions sculpt our organs, protect us from diseases, grant us incredible abilities, and bombard us with their genes. Based on his bestselling book, I Contain Multitudes, science writer Ed Yong will take us takes us on a tour of this neglected but increasingly fashionable world--one of glowing squid, gutless worms, disease-fighting mosquitoes, and faecal transplants.
