The resource has been added to your collection
This site, provided by the American Society for Microbiology, showcases a searchable database of over 150 images of microbes. The images, submitted by professional microbiologists, have been carefully reviewed for their educational quality and are presented in formats ranging from high-powered microscopic stills to QuickTime animations and film footage. Each image includes a background summary of the organism and notes the research project the image is taken from; some give Spanish or Portuguese translations. Examples of interesting images include scanning electron micrographs of a cytotoxic lymphocyte destroying a tumor and a QuickTime animation of the microorganism-macrophage interaction of the immune system. This site also includes curriculum resources, searchable by keyword or core concept, and a link to the new e-journal _Microbiology Educaton_(PDF, .html).
