Science in a Cup: Probiotics

Deane Woruba from the Western Sydney University introduces the concept of probiotics, fitness, microbiomes (see Thomas's interview) and how his PhD research is helping farmers manage a terrible insect pest (Tephritid fruit flies such as the Queensland fruit fly). Presented by Dr Alexie Papanicolaou of the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (Western Sydney University, Australia), Science in a Cup is a 5 minute interview-style podcast where a scientist explains one word related to science. Sometimes it is a jargon but more often this is a word we use every day but scientists may have a different meaning.
