This Glogowski Microbial Biorealm Genus template page is a guide for each team when adding information and your reference(s)to an already existing species on MicrobeWiki. Be sure to add your team names on the line at the bottom of the page after "Edited by students" and in front of "M Glogowski at Loyola University". If the team is creating and adding an entirely new species to this website, use this entire template to set up the page for that particular species and state that the new page is authored by your Student Names.
