WorldWideWeb Wednesdays

Introducing one of my favourite science websites: MicrobeWorld.

                    
Brain child of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), this website is designed to connect microbiologists and science enthusiasts alike.

Driven by user submitted content, it allows anyone with an interest in microbiology to share interesting news stories, facts and even their own research with the science community. Even you can submit content to be posted on the website.

One of my favourite features is BacterioFiles with Jesse Nohr.

                          

Jesse discusses the importance of bacteria to try to dispel the negative connotations often associated with bacteria and virus.

They are typically shorter podcasts averaging around 3-5 minutes but there have been a few 30+ minute ones on occasion! It's something great to toss on your iPod before heading to class to put you in a science mind-set and also give you some interesting facts you can use whenever someone speaks negatively about bacteria!
