This side trip will introduce the audience to a part of their body that they may not be all that familiar with — the microbiome. The human microbiome refers to the microorganisms that live in and on all of us. These microbes are very important for our health and the loss of some of them may underlie disease. We will explore the microbiome together with examples from recent scientific research.

MSU Wonderlust is a high-quality community resource for lifelong learning for the Bozeman area.  Here is university-quality instruction by experts in a huge number of subjects, some multi-week courses, some one-off events.  These offerings come free of homework, exams, or papers: The MSU Wonderlust experience is just a chance to learn new things or review things we’d already studied.  It's also an opportunity to meet people with a wide variety of interests.

The Winter/Spring offerings begin with a reception at the Pilgrim Congregational Church from 4 to 6pm.  It's a chance to meet with the course instructors and side-trip presenters; find out more about their plans.
