Text:  Microbes are both good and bad. Our body is made of eukaryotic cells, however, we have 10 x much more prokaryotic cells (microbes) in our body. Those are there staying in a symbiotic relationship with us either as mutual (both benefit), commensal (microbe benefits but does no harm to us either) and parasitic (bad ones, gets benefit and cause damage too). Good microbes are called normal flora and we have a lot in our GI system. The video on infograhic and youtube why I chose Microbiology is to cater to our students, the latter being our target population. Hopefully, after seeing this video, our students will not have fear of working with microbes and who knows- some might start of thinking of developing a career out of Microbiology.
