Micro-Organism of the Day - Tardigrade

17 November 2020

Description: There are more microorganisms in a teaspoon of soil than there are people on the planet, but most of us have never seen them.

Join us as we take a short journey into the microcosm and look at a different microorganism everyday between 16-20 November 2020 and learn why research into these tiny critters is important.
