Microbiota

Nigel Sussman interprets the stomach's microbiota for the cover of Science Magazine.

Nigel has captured the entirety of ones' guts in this illustration, including good and bad bacteria, parasitic worms, viruses, food, medications, and our genetics. The article is about research on the microbiota and how it may be manipulated for better health, made all the more clear by Nigel's mechanical art.
