Let's hear it; what's your favorite microbe and why?

Yeast, for its industrial uses (beer).

When I contacted Dr. Louis about the article published in New Scientist back in March, I asked him why he hasn't done a hemoglobin test since they look so much like RBCs. He replied stating that they can't be RBCs because they don't have DNA. For some not familar with RBCs... RBCs DON'T HAVE DNA ANY...
