A look at bacteriology
By: Megan Worley
Bacteriology is the study of the uses and applications of bacteria as well as characterizing and identifying them. The study of bacteria is essential to the well being of humans, to help determine which bacteria are necessary for health benefits and which are harmful. The...

By: Ms. C. Jones
We are on the brink of a DNA revolution. A revolution that will reveal your genetic code and give you insight into how your life will pan out. We are all at the mercy of out DNA -the code that makes us who we are...
Fungal dispersal mechanisms
By: Effie Moore Salem
How do fungi get to where they need to go? Fungi, according to botany.edu, get to various host sites in a number of ways. Most of these dispersal mechanisms are as yet unknown but there is speculative ongoing experimentation. Fungi do not bear seeds...

Existing somewhere in every part of the biosphere, microorganisms serve many purposes. While, from the point of view of some other organisms, these might not all be positive, each and every one is important to the survival of life on Earth. One of the primary...
The history of microbiology
By: Effie Moore Salem
More than ever medical scientists ae now relying on the history of microbiology is the ongoing history of how scientists are conquering disease processes. They must know what has been before they can proceed to uncover more leads into how these can help their quest...
