1 Year Anniversary of the Joyful Microbe

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the Joyful Microbe blog, I’m sharing some things I’ve learned along the way and which blog posts were your favorites.

It’s big, yellow, not a fungus, not an animal. It’s the blob! My latest Joyful Microbe blog post is about the slime mold Physarum polycephalum, affectionately called “le blob” by the French researcher Dr. Audrey Dussutour, who studies them. Check out this post where I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Dussutour and learning about her work with slime molds. #slimemold #slimemolds #microbes #biology #science
