​NEW PowerPoint FORMAT! In the fall of 2013, the PowerPoint format for most lectures in the Virtual Microbiology Classroom was updated to eliminate fill-in-the-blanks and add more critical thinking questions and animated lessons. Instructors who prefer the previous fill-in-the-blank format can still access these materials. Follow us on Facebook to stay updated.
