Microbial balance is crucial for a healthy life - whether in humans, animals or plants. Even waters and soils, and thus entire ecosystems, depend on it. If this dynamic balance of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms falters, the consequences can be severe.
Research into the Microverse is all about the communication and interaction of these tiny organisms with each other and with their environment. This is because they have often been living together for millions of years and are rarely found in isolation.
Prof. Brakhage explains that the next antibiotic agent may be waiting to be discovered in our front yard. And from this, in the best case, a drug can be developed that specifically attacks undesirable microorganisms and does not affect the beneficial ones.
Microorganisms like bacteria and fungi have a big influence on our lives. Often they appear to us as threats to our health but that is only a very narrow view on the functions and abilities of microorganisms. In fact, life would not be possible without them: a balanced microbiome keeps humans, animals, plants and ecosystems healthy. Moreover they are significant for our nutrition – humans have been using microorganisms such as yeast or lactic acid bacteria to produce food for thousands of years.
Members and friends of the Microverse Cluster and the Jena School for Microbial Communication have revealed their favourite delicious recipes which involve the activity of microorganisms. You will also find information on typical microorganisms used for food production.
Discover the Microverse and enjoy the microbial kitchen!
