The Origin of Microorganisms

Evolutionists must explain how cells, once they emerged from lifeless matter, diversified into the many life forms we see today. It is supposed that some extinct ancestor of the archaebacteria and eubacteria developed the necessary biologic machinery to survive.

Microorganism Helps Develop Site-specific Drug Delivery

Who knew that a well-known parasite might lead to the next major breakthrough in medical treatment? Scientists are leading the way to understand how microscopic creatures (primarily Giardia lamblia) move through the bloodstream. The goal? Construct micro-robots that can navigate the dangerous twists and turns of the bloodstream.
