American Museum of Natural History Explores the Microbes of New York in Amusing Animation

Inspired by THE SECRET WORLD INSIDE YOU exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History, a project began to document some of the thousands of microbial species that inhabit New York City. Here are five of their stories. The organisms featured in this video were all found on PathoMap—a project from Weill Cornell Medical College researcher Chris Mason and colleagues that collected genetic samples from all over public spaces in New York to learn which microbes call the city home.
