Recent advances in measuring and visualizing microbial diversity in nature have prompted a new era of microbial research, one that builds on the foundations of well established plant and animal biodiversity research. SFI External Professor Jessica Green discusses how explorations of microbial biodiversity in the indoor environment may radically change thinking about sustainability, human health, and well being.
