Walnut Creek, CA (Scicasts) – The Earth is estimated to have about a nonillion (1, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000) microbes in, on, around, and under it, comprised of an unknown but very large number of distinct species. Despite the widespread availability of microbial genome data—close to 2,000 microbes have been and are being decoded to date—a vast unknown realm awaits scientists intent on exploring microorganisms that inhabit this “undiscovered country.”
