According to the Oxford Dictionary, a microcosm is:
a community, place, or situation regarded as encapsulating in miniature the characteristics of something much larger
As you may have guessed from the name of my blog, I love to learn about microbes and molecules (I am a microbiologist and biochemist).  However, as I am perpetually curious about almost everything, so I will also write about mysteries of the universe.  This blog is my chance to share my fanaticism of such things.  This blog is my microcosm.  It is a small part of my world and a small part of our Planet Earth.

Did you know that the Earth is 7 million times bigger in diameter than the average man, and that a person is 21 million times taller than the H1N1 influenza virus?
