Shifting the Paradigm: Microbes as Animal Helpmates

Friday, January 30, 2015 at 8:00am to 6:00pm

Mann Library, Mann Gallery, 2nd floor
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

We often think of tiny microbes—aka germs—as big trouble, but recent science is showing that they can be very beneficial for the animal world. As life science researchers deepen such insights, art provides a way to gain a new appreciation for this symbiotic relationship.  In a new exhibit at Mann Library, biologists from around the world use photography and other media to examine and celebrate the intricate relationship between macro-organisms and their microbial partners.

Presented in the Mann Library Gallery in collaboration with Dr. Margaret McFall-Ngai (A. D. White Professor-at-Large) and Dr. Angela Douglas (Dept. of Entomology).
