This informative and absorbing chronology presents events in the annals of microbiology in light of their historical context and identifies those individuals who made these events happen. Beginning in the 4th millennium with citations of ancient medicine and diseases, the chronology follows the development of microbiology and related sciences throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and culminates with the explosion of discoveries in the late 20th century.

Based on the premise that knowledge of contemporary events helps our understanding of how and why particular scientific advances were made, includes advances in other scientific disciplines such as biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, microscopy, chemistry, and physics, as well as events from social, political, and cultural history.

Intended as a valuable resource for teachers and students, provides a wealth of information not usually found in standard textbooks.
