Welcome to MicrobeWiki

MicrobeWiki is a free wiki resource on microbes and microbiology, authored by students at many colleges and universities. Curated pages such as those linked to the Taxonomy Index are reviewed and updated by microbiologists at Kenyon College. Student pages authored independently, or for coursework, are not monitored further. Interested readers are encouraged to add information, after registering a free account.

Featured Class: The University of Oklahoma Italian Center, taught by Tyrrell Conway.

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. 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. See for example:


Antarctica presents an ongoing investigation of Antarctic microbes, from sampling expedition to culture and metagenomes.

Microbial Mythology: common misconceptions and controversies in microbiology.

Study Microbes presents study questions and recommended species for students to learn, based on the textbook Microbiology: An Evolving Science by Joan Slonczewski and John Foster (W. W. Norton & Co.)

You can now conveniently manage a reference list in a page on MicrobeWiki using the Cite extension. See the Zika virus page for an example
