I have to admit I am not a classical microbiologist but a phycologist who
works on unicellular algae...
In the UK last night there was a sci programme about cot deaths and it covered
some recent ground on the effects of bedding and whether they were involved.
The microbiology of it was that some forensic scientist in Jersey was
convinced that all the bedding had a fungus that was involved in producing
toxic gases. This was slated by a London group that said they weren't fungi
but bacteria and no gases were being made.
Question: easy mistake or what?
