Micro*scope Tutorial

Page created by George Rice at Montana State University
Micro*scope is being developed to bring more information about diversity within the microbial world into the classroom, and research laboratory. It has benefited from contributions of dozens of enthusiasts around the world. Micro*scope uses taxonomic principals to organize information held in its databases of images and descriptions along with access to linked information at other expert websites. This effort is very much a work in progress and contributions, comments, and ideas are encouraged by the creators.
