Jessica Stoller-Conrad, Caltech A new technique developed at Caltech helps grow individual species of the unknown microbes that live in the human body. Trillions of bacteria live in and on the human body; a few species can make us sick, but many others keep us healthy by boosting digestion and preventing inflammation. Although there's plenty of evidence that these microbes play a collective role in human health, we still know very little about most of the individual bacterial species...
