Josep Casadesús, professor and vitalist microbiologist, dies at 70 years of age.Josep Casadesús was Professor of Genetics at the University of Seville, and devoted his life to Salmonella enterica as a model organism of bacterial pathogenesis and microbial genetics. Nothing is small in microbiology, because microbes, even a single microbe, offers the most complete picture of Nature, of all Life. That is why those who love a microbe love life; that is why our friend – he will forever remain our friend – is a vitalist microbiologist. Read the full obituary
