The experiments in this book demonstrate the importance of bacteria and other micro-organisms such as moulds, yeasts, protozoa and algae. Experiments explore the role that micro-organisms play in the environment and in the cause and cure of disease, and how they are controlled by chemical and physical factors. The experiments follow the methodology dictated by science fair competitions. Topics covered include history and tools of microbiology, genetics and mutations, antibiotics and micro-organisms, microbiology of soil, water, air and sewage, and microbiology from your skin to your back garden. The text begins with a thorough overview of the scientific method and the science fair. Each experiment contains an introduction explaining the background and application of the topic.
