Sampling the Wild Microbial Life of My Home

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.
