Biology Articles » Microbiology
This section covers general topics and studies in Microbiology, which is the study of microorganisms and their effects on other living organisms. Microorganisms include diverse groups of bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, as well as the pathogenic particles, viruses. However, this section will concentrate more on bacteria. Articles about other microorganisms are found in other categories.
