New contributions are welcome. Students, researchers, and others with knowledge and interest in microbiology are welcome to compose and edit pages. To become an editor, please request a free account.

Educators: You may assign MicrobeWiki page creation and editing as projects for your students. We create a template page for your assignment, which you may edit to meet your needs. See for example the pages created by the following classes:

Your students receive individual passwords. Assessment and grading are up to you; after your class is over, we review pages for our standards. Students of all levels, from first-year to graduate students, have contributed pages to our site.
