This is an excellent site to apply the  information learned in microbiology class. There are few web based  application websites and hence,  I am eager to use these learning activities in my class. Great resource!!

Great website!! I intend to use it in my medical microbiology class and my genetics class this fall. It was fun and informative. I’m also glad you incorporated modern tools into the lab even though they were in the future.


Great job. I also looked at your CSI lab and it looks like a lot of fun as well. Thanks for making a dry subject fun and interactive!!!
