Research has been done on the diversity of bacteria, fungi and other organisms that live on our skin, in our guts, even in our belly buttons. But there are other entire ecosystems that surround us. And scientists want to understand how they differ based on how and where we live. What’s the tiny life like on a door frame in Brooklyn compared with that in Des Moines? Or how do fridge microbes of an urban singleton stack up with those of a suburban family?
对生存在我们皮肤,内脏甚至肚脐李的很多病毒,真菌和其他一些原核微生物已经做过调查研究,但是在我们的周围有其他的生态系统,科学家想根据我们怎样和在何地生活来理解他们的不同。和得梅因相比,布鲁克林门框里的小生命会是什么样呢?城里冰箱里的单个的细菌是怎样和郊区家庭里的细菌堆积联系起来的?

The research team seeks ten volunteers from each state, five urban and five rural. Each volunteer will get a kit of vials and swabs, along with instructions about where and how to swipe—such as door frames, couch cushions, refrigerators, even yourself. The samples will be analyzed, to uncover the secrets of our microscopic companions. To find out more, go to robdunnlab.com
研究小组找了是个来自不同地区的志愿者,五个来自城市五个来自郊区。每个人都会得到一些小瓶和纱布,还有怎样和在哪儿击打的说明,击打的东西像是门框,坐垫,电冰箱甚至你自己(以取得微生物)。这些样例将被分析以揭开陪伴我们的微生物的秘密。想了解更多,请登录robdunnlab.com
