Renew your Knowledge of Microbiology

Enjoy this scientific spring scavenger hunt and find the answers to these 10 questions on the history of microbiology. The birth of microbiology revolved around many key discoveries beginning around the mid to late 1600’s. These discoveries were at the cutting edge of science at the time and thanks to these dedicated people, the groundwork was laid for discoveries today.

I am sure all of the knowledgeable microbiologists reading this know who each of these scientists are. But, to find the answer to the questions posted is going to take a little effort. Your reward is a MO BIO T-shirt. I will send a t-shirt to the first three people to get them all correct.

Don’t post your answers in the comments field, however, if you need a hint you can request one in the comments field and I will reply. Next week, all of the correct answers will be posted in this article.

Have fun and good luck on the hunt!
