Power Point Lecture Presentations
Microbiology PowerPoint Lectures
Fill-in-the-blank and Notes Format
The information on the Power Point slides in each lecture contains blanks that the students fill in. If find that having blanks encourages the student to follow along (rather than drift off) and encourages attendance.
Instructors can find the answers to the blanks on the notes view of each Power Point slide.
Microbiology Lecture Power Points
There is also a collection of Microbiology Lab PowerPoints available, that are used in the laboratory portion of the Introductory Microbiology Course that I teach.
Lecture 1: Introduction to Microbiology
Lecture 2: History of Microbiology
Lecture 3: Prokaryote Cell Structure and Function
Lecture 4: Meet the Microbes: Prokaryotes

Lecture 10: Human Immune System: Nonspecific - Innate
Lecture 11: Human Immune System: Specific - Acquired
Additional Reference PPT: List of Microbes Covered in This Course
This PowerPoint lists all of the microbes that we will be discussing in Applied Microbiology. The list includes eukaryotic, prokaryotic and acellular microbes with properly formatted scientific names and reference to the lectures in which we discussed each microbe.

Need More Microbiology Information?
Although I've tried to provide links that take site visitors to additional articles related to each microbiology lecture topic, there are many not yet linked. If you need more micro information, see the Microbiology main page at Suite101. Click the link above and then do a search of your specific interest.
Using a Compound Light Microscope: Magnification, Lenses, Focusing & Finding Objects
Learn about the features of a compound light microscope, importance of contrast, how to determine total magnification and how to easily find and focus on specimens.
MicrobeWiki is a free wiki resource on microbes and microbiology, edited by students and monitored by microbiologists at Kenyon College.
Adorable blog of microbes and their little cartoon avatars authored by Emma Lurie and presented in a very user-friendly format.
Fun science website aimed at young people interested in science. Read science articles, try DIY science experiments, and find out strange science facts.
This is a collection of lectures that I have given repeatedly, always tweaking and changing as I try to improve them. The materials in the lectures have been gathered from a multitude of places. Textbooks, my head, the Power Point lectures of other instructors.
Some of the lectures include credits for all images and material. But as this is a time-intensive process, I have not completed this task for all lectures.
If you run across an image or material that you are the author of, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will either give you proper credit for your work, r remove the material from this website, whichever you'd prefer.
Although I have spent a great deal of time creating these lectures, no doubt there is an error or two (or possibly more). If you find a mistake, please drop me an email (email@example.com) so that I can make a correction.
The entire Science Prof Online website, including the Virtual Classrooms, is currently being overhauled and updated.
PROBLEMS DOWNLOADING POWERPOINT LECTURES WILL SOON BE FIXED!!
The revisions should be finished by the end of 2009! When completed, all materials will be accessible from the SPO Home Page.
