Microbiology Online

URL:www.microbiologyonline.org.uk
  • Nice site design and organization
  • None

Now here is one big website for things so small! The educational website for the Society for General Microbiology, Microbiology Online is packed full of information about microorganisms. Combining animations and actual images of the microbes, the website offers students the opportunity to explore pages such as introducing microbes, microbes and the human body, microbes and food, and microbes and climate change. For teachers, the site provides information on such topics as microbes and basic principles, preparation of media and cultures, activities, and safety information. There are a number of free downloadable resources available to teachers, as well. Beyond the teacher and student pages, Microbiology Online also includes links to the latest news and podcasts/videos. The site is well organized and contains a lot of material to excite both students and teachers of the subject.
