    Understanding Bacteria

    How do benign bacteria work? How are infectious bacteria fought? And how are scientists adapting both types of bacteria to good - or evil - uses? This program answers those questions through the observations and insights of Stanley Falkow, Fred Tenover, and other specialists. The role of E. coli in digestion, the relationship between H. pylori and ulcers, medical waste, the exploitation of anthrax as a weapon, and the discovery of extraterrestrial bacteria are all considered.
