Microbial voices & insights

To thrive on microbial earth, we need to understand microbes, learn how to co-exist with them, and show respect for each other. Together we can build a greener and more sustainable future under the guard of microbes. At mBio.Works, we are dedicated to sharing our knowledge and experiences. This is our collection of technical docs, microbiology essays, case studies, concept explanations, literature digests, patent notes, social event highlights, lab life snapshots, conference and exhibition summaries, teaching materials, and more, all originally written by our microbes-inspired staff.
