We have to admit: We love microbiology! But why? Isn’t it just another interesting piece of nature? Interesting but that’s it? Definitely not! Microbiology is one of the most fascinating topics offered by nature.
They are so old
First, microbiology links us to the past. But not only to the last two hundred thousands of years like the Homo Sapiens. The ancestors of the bacteria evolved on earth already 3.5 billions of years ago. They have been the roots of the evolution and the first forms of life.
They are so many
Second, there are so many of them. It is estimated that about 5 nonillion bacteria exist on earth. That means 5 x 1000000000000000000000000000000 cells. They are dominating the earth.
They will survive
Third, microorganisms will still live on earth when the mankind is already forgotten. They have the ability to adapt extremely fast and efficient and will survive any disaster, which will occur some day in the future.
Of course there are many other facts why microbiology is so fascinating but in principle these are – for us – the most important facts, which brings us to the opinion that studying microbiology is one of the most intriguing topics.
We have focused on microbiology since the very beginning of our company. Our team consists of many specialists like microbiologists, chemists and other experts. But we are all linked together by our love for microbiology.
And this is the reason why we have started our “World of Microbiology” blog. Enjoy!
