Created by the American Society for Microbiology, the Microbe World Web site highlights the increasing importance of microbes in the environment, biotechnology, alternative energy, food science, and healthcare. Designed for science enthusiasts, students, teachers, parents, and the general public, the site features articles, images, audio and video podcasts, RSS feeds, and mobile "phonecasts." Microbe World also offers a comprehensive resources section for educators, parents, and students that includes experiments, lesson plans, and tools for microbiology education.
