TWiM 223: The smell of soil

August 15, 2020

The TWiMmers explore detection of SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces in an ophthalmology examination room, the ability of stressed populations of Yersinia bacteria to survive antimicrobial treatment within host tissues, and how volatile organic chemicals produced by soil microbes attract arthropods which in turn disperse bacterial spores.

Hosts: Vincent Racaniello, Elio Schaechter, Michele Swanson and Michael Schmidt
