Technically speaking bacteria don't have vertebrae, making them hence in-vertebrate, but there are animals and even though animals have loads of them in every nook and cranny! Deep Sea News is hosting Microbe Week all next week (sept. 9-15). Its going to be awesome, just check out the special banner for the occasion below.
I've been contracted by the organizers of Microbe week to do a microbially-oriented song. Christina Kellogg found lyrics by Annette Parrott for O Bacteria, sung to the traditional American song O Susanna. The chords for O Susanna were pretty straight forward, so I went ahead with it. Your spineless song this week, in cooperation with Microbe Week at Deep Sea News, is in the sidebar for your listening entertainment. The lyrics can be found at Annette Parrott's Science Karaoke site (last song on the page), with lots of other great science song lyrics!
