Only from a human perspective

This site will discuss the benefits and harmful effects of such microorganisms to the areas of human consumption and human health. It is only to ourselves as human beings that we consider these effects, after all, to another microorganism we may be considered to be a benefit as a tasty morsel or smelly host!

Starting point for more information

The site is primarily a starting point for further information about microorganisms with pointers to other useful research and background material contained in other websites. Whether you are a student at school or simply browsing through the subject, I hope that you find the information helpful.
