Photographs and pictures include light micrographs and electron micrographs (SEMs and TEMs) of microbes. Photographs and pictures in this section include researchers using light microscopes and petri dishes to culture microbes in the laboratory. Urine samples and blood tests are analysed. Prion research is shown here, along with molecular models of viruses and research into antibiotics and other drug treatments.
