Mycobacterium vaccae

My name is M. vaccae.

I'm an acid fast bacteria like my cousins.
I live in the soil.

When I'm around, some people make more serotonin.
That's the chemical in your brain that makes you happy.
A lot of people think that I may be able to help fight depression.

haha.cute cow. hey! why is m. vacae holding a pink flower, stop giving it gender =-P

because i didnt like the look of a yellow flower (they are the most flower-y colours)

Besides, pink isn't automatically a "girl" color, yeah? It's just a happy color. :)

Additionally, "vaccae" is the genitive form of Latin "vacca" (cow, hence the little cow picture), which is a feminine noun. :-)

Of course, "Mycobacterium" itself is a neuter noun, but hey...

I really like this idea you got going on. I was actually looking for a bacteria to do a presentation on for my Microbial Physiology graduate course. And this one really caught my attention. Your blog is actually useful, unlike mine. Thanks for the inspiration.
