Biosphere Features IGB Fellow Melissa Cregger

As part of our new video series Biosphere, Claire Sturgeon talks to microbe maven and IGB Fellow Melissa Cregger about her research.


Biosphere, the IGB video series, explores Earth’s life-zone. Experience life-zone research in the Sciencesphere, discover life-zone technology in the Technisphere, and meet life-zone mavens in the Peoplesphere.

Highlights of this Peoplesphere flick include: the vaginal microbe community and seven-month-old baby Asher.

Biosphere is produced by and filmed at the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois.
