Crossposting this from my Tree of Life blog.
Just finally got around to doing the sampling of my house for the Wild Life of Our Homes microbial sampling project.
I signed up online, got a kit, got a registration code, and did the sampling today. I swabbed the exterior door frame, an interior door frame, the kitchen counter and my pillow case. Plus as a bonus, my 7 year old daughter helped – learning a bit about microbial sampling and also taking pictures of me at work (and a few of herself).
So many cool Citizen Microbiology projects going on now. Some information about them is here but I need to update the links there.
