Your body is teeming with tens of trillions of microbes. It’s an entire world, a colony full of life, a thriving ecosystem. These microscopic companions sculpt our organs, protect us from diseases, guide our behaviour, and bombard us with their genes. They also hold the key to understanding all life on earth.

Science writer Ed Yong explains how bacteria have shaped animal evolution and human health, why breastfeeding is about more than just babies, how animals can survive without mouths or guts, and why Australian scientists are fighting tropical diseases by releasing infected mosquitoes.
