|Explore Armpit and Belly Button Microbes with DNA Sequencing
Offered by: North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences
Fridays Only. Learn how scientists use DNA sequencing to identify the "wildlife" living on our bodies. Swab your director's armpit and/or belly button and we will grow the bacteria in the lab so everyone can see the microbial critters that call our bodies "home." You will learn how and why DNA sequencing is used for explorations of bacterial diversity.
