Microbial wasp. Conceptual illustration of a wasp consisting of millions of microbes. This represents research that suggests that the microbes that coexist with animals and humans are just as much part of the organisms as their normal DNA-encoded cells. For every one of the DNA-encoded cells, 10 microbes exist. This illustration represents the Nasonia parasitoid wasp, the genome of which was published in 2010.
