    When you hear the words “germ,” “bacteria,” and “virus” you might cringe, running for the nearest sink to wash your hands. These words may bring back memories of when you caught a cold or the flu—never a pleasant experience. Germs, bacteria, viruses and other microscopic organisms are called microorganisms, or microbes for short. And as you’ll learn throughout this book, some microbes cause disease while others help fight it. Think for a moment. Right now there are thousands of tiny microbes living on the tip of your finger in a world that is so small that it can only be visited by using a microscope. In this book we’ll show you how to visit this world and howto interact with these tiny creatures that call the tip of your finger home. The microscopic world was first visited in the late 1600s by the Dutch merchant and amateur scientist Antoni van Leeuwenhoek. He was able to see living microorganisms by using a single-lens microscope. We’ve come a long way since Van Leeuwenhoek’s first visit. Today scientists are able to see through some microbes and study the organelles that bring them to life.
