Strong Points: Excellent microbiology resource
Weak Points: Name change needed

OK, a test of your imagination. Did you envision the opening page of this site with a list of names like Escherichia coli that you scroll through? OK, you’re like me and in fact, you’re not far off from accurately describing the site. List of Prokaryotic Names, however, offers more than a simple list of names. Each name is hyperlinked to more information, fortunately, or it wouldn’t be written up here. The information at the end of the hyperlink contains references and descriptions of the particular species/genus that was chosen. This is no small amount of information or effort, folks, and I recommend this site to any microbiologists looking for easy access to referencing on prokaryotic names.
