Microbiology Today - Schoolzone
Microbiology Today is the Microbiology Society's quarterly magazine. Aimed at both the specialist and the general reader, the magazine has a colourful and stylish layout with a lively range of features and articles, which proves a valuable resource for anyone wishing to know more about current issues and research in microbiology. The content is carefully balanced to meet the needs of the Society’s members and the magazine aims to provide informative and enjoyable broad-interest articles for all stakeholders, including parliamentarians and policy-makers.
Within Microbiology Today, we have a dedicated education section called Schoolzone, which features previews of new school resources, recommended microbiology practical experiments and articles written by leading experts.

These micro-organisms are mainly bacteria, but also include viruses and fungi, and are collectively known as the ‘human microbiome’. The bacteria that make up the human microbiome live together in a close relationship with us and some even help the body perform vital functions.
