    No Svartnik, that would be the rate of infection estimated by the wee beasties.

    1) is correct, 2) requires an apostrophe after organisms['], or, omit the s from the word [organism]

    konungursvia is absolutely correct. However the question should be, "Which phrase is correct...", not "What phrase is correct...".
