Abstract

After dominating the earth in numbers and biomass for a good 3.5 billion years, microbes are now finally in the public consciousness. The vigorous surge in the study of microbes promises to yield novel approaches to treating diseases and maintaining health. In the middle of the deluge of scientific publications and lay articles, we pause to reflect on this trend.
