After this lab you should be able to:
- Collect, observe, record, and identify microbes from natural samples.
A course in microbiology should convince you of this. However, most of the work done in an introductory microbiology course is in the laboratory, often with a slant toward the clinical world. Yet we know that microbes are found in all environments. So, let’s go outside. Let’s find some microbes around campus, grab some samples from natural sources outside the classroom and take a look.
