Microbes "A to Z"

Welcome to the Microbe A to Z Index.  This page currently lists 217 bacterial and archaean genera, with links to web sites of interest. To find a particular genus, scroll down the page or use the alphabetical link bar below. Many of the genera do not have hyperlinks yet, and Microbiology students can earn up to 3 bonus points for finding links to web sites with good photos and information about those organisms. You will also notice checkmarks () next to some of these links. These are groups of bacteria that you will need to know for the third exam. You can visit each of these in order by going on the Micro Tour
