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.

- BIOL 375 Virology, Joan L. Slonczewski, Kenyon College
- BIOL 238 Project Index 2016, Joan L. Slonczewski, Kenyon College
- BI 230 Microbiology, Dr. Kirk Bartholomew, Sacred Heart University

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.
