Worms are in the Big Apple. And bacteria and viruses and all sorts of organisms and other factors related to disease. For the next 6 months (until September 6), they can be found in "Epidemic! The World of Infectious Disease," a new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Exploring the biological and ecological factors that influence the causes, spread, and control of infectious disease, the exhibit will also investigate the ways in which various cultures meet and combat humankind's eternal foe. It emphasizes the crucial need to understand the global nature of infectious disease.
