White House Promotes Our National Microbiome Initiative

The White House promotes a big joint private-government National Microbiome Initiative to fundamentally and comprehensively1 study the tiniest of creatures. This is definitely not yesterday's biology.

Kudos to our President!  It's difficult to overstate how important a continuously fully funded national initiative to study these tiny creatures is, which have such dramatic impacts on a scale of piconewtons and picometers.
