'''MicrobeWiki''' is a free wiki resource on microbes and microbiology, edited by students and monitored by microbiologists at [http://www.kenyon.edu '''Kenyon College'''].  We invite you to use our Microbe Wiki to study the microbial world with us. You are encouraged to add information, after registering a [[Contact MicrobeWiki|'''free account''']]. <br><br>
'''Educators:''' You may assign MicrobeWiki page creation and editing as projects for your students.  We create a [[List of class template pages | template page]] for your assignment, which you may edit to meet your needs.  See for example the pages created by the following classes:
* BIMM120 Bacteriology, Dr. Rachel Larsen and Dr. Kit Pogliano, [[UCSD | University of California at San Diego]]
* BI 230 Microbiology, Dr. Kirk Bartholomew, [[Sacred Heart University]]
* MB 103 Introductory Topics in Microbiology, [http://www.mbio.ncsu.edu/JWB/home.html James Brown], NC State University (student pages in progress)
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.<br><br>
'''MicrobeWiki''' includes these modules:<br>
'''[[Microbial Biorealm]]''': encylopedia of bacteria, archaea and eukaryotic microbes.  See also [[Taxonomy Index]].<br>
'''[[Viral Biorealm]]''': encyclopedia of viruses of animals and plants, and bacteriophages.  See also [[Taxonomy Index]].<br>
'''[[Microbial World News]]''': highlights of microbiology in the news.<br>
'''[[Microbial Mythology]]''': common errors and controversies in microbiology.<br>
