A Micro Bio

Welcome, OCD people, neat-freaks, and other detail oriented readers!

Here’s a little about the site:

Microbisme was started by a few college friends studying MLS at CalTech, who were searching for one site to have cool news about things on a tiny scale. Since they couldn’t find anything suitable, they started this blog! It features news from all sorts of sources and topics, ranging from nanotechnology to life philosophy from a micro perspective.

As you might expect, we run things here on a small scale–we’re still just a couple of friends running the site in our spare time. During the week, we’re both lab researchers. One of us works in genetic engineering, while the other is a pathogen specialist with the CDC.

We hope you love the site and find it interesting and engaging!
