I Contain Multitudes: The Series

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has a fabulous track record of creating a number of top-notch classroom resources for science educators. That said, the new short film series "I Contain Multitudes," created by science writer Ed Yong (who authored a book by the same name) and HHMI's Tangled Banks Studios, is not for science teachers alone. This series, which is dedicated to microbes and their role in the world, is highly entertaining and suitable for viewing both inside and outside the classroom. In one episode, Yong explains how the bobtail squid teams up with the bacterium Vibrio fischeri to emit a glowing light that allows for squid to blend in with its oceanic environment. In another episode, Yong discusses recent research about the emergences of antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Interested viewers can access this series through the above link or on YouTube. These episodes, which are each approximately eight minutes in length, offer an excellent resource that biology instructors may want to use to supplement existing curriculum.
