James Meadow is recently back from the American Society for Microbiology meeting in Boston, MA, where he was speaking in a special session called “We Are Not Alone: Microbial Revelations of the Built Environment.” The session was filled with really interesting talks ranging from Legionella in school buses to fungi in restrooms to biofilms in drinking water pipes. The organizers were generous enough to let us post a link to all session videos for free!
