One day, microbes will eliminate dirt and garbage, filter exhaust systems, and help make self-cleaning clothing possible. Takes viewers on a global journey-from the U.S. to Iceland, Sweden, India, China, Senegal, and Australia-to meet the world's leading specialists in bacteriology and to discover the incredible abilities of the microscopic life-forms they study. Employs state-of-the-art imaging technology and animation to illustrate how bacteria have learned to adapt to harsh environments and how they can be found in a vast array of human-made products and materials, including medicines, pesticides, plastics, solvents, and even electroacoustic speakers.
