Microbiology: General Information

General Information magnifying glass iconUse general information sources to learn about basic microbiology concepts, gather facts about bacteria, pathogens, or diseases, and set a solid foundation for performing more in-depth research. For general information, consider checking the following types of sources:

  • Encyclopedias and general databases
  • Websites
  • Books

More information and links are available below.

A note on Wikipedia: Wikipedia can be a good place to start when learning about a new topic or concept. However, due to its crowd-sourced nature, it should never be the only source you consult, and you should not cite it in your references. Instead, use Wikipedia's "References" section to link to additional sources.

Encyclopedias & Databases
