Until recently, biologists considered bacteria to be pathogens that negatively affected the health of humans and other animals. Over the last decade, however, scientists have discovered that most animals live with bacteria in mutually beneficial relationships. Using the Hawaiian bobtail squid and its bioluminescent bacterial partner as a model, Margaret McFall- Ngai will address how animals select their bacteria—sometimes thousands of species—and how they maintain “diplomatic relations” with these microbial organisms.
