This Week in Microbiology

They've finally done it! MicrobeWorld and Dr. Vincent Racaniello from TWiV and TWiP have begun a new podcast: This Week in Microbiology. Dr. Racaniello and a panel of experts he brings on will discuss topics and news in microbiology, including topics suggested by listeners. It's not all just pathogens either, or just bacteria: future episodes should include topics on viruses/bacteriophages, archaea, eukaryotes, biotechnology, etc. It should be great!

In the first episode, they discuss a fascinating discovery: Neisseria gonorrhoeae has incorporated human-origin DNA into its own genome. Go check it out!
