Why did I become a microbiologist!?

Imagine the early earth: meteors smashing, volcanoes spewing, pools boiling, and an atmosphere constantly shifting. A dramatic world created by chemical and physical interactions. In this alien place, simple molecules and elements began combining to form molecular species of ever-greater complexity and variety. Somewhere, under some unknown condition, these complex molecules came together to from nucleic acids, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. All wrapped up in a package, the cell formed… and “life” began.

To get a glimpse of life at its most basic level and discover my “life” amongst it all: that’s why I became a microbiologist.
