Welcome to the Teachers' Corner of Small Things Considered. In this section, we include the posts we deem most adequate for teaching purposes. We have reorganized them into subject areas geared for a typical microbiology course. To date, this material has been used for various forms of intellectual enrichment, e.g., suggested readings, class presentations, a source of topics for term papers.
We would appreciate feedback. If you have used this material, please tell us of your experience.
Structure & Cell Organization
Metabolism & Regulation
Growth & Cell Division
Genetics & Genomics
Bacterial & Archaeal Diversity
Protists (incl. microalgae)
Viruses & Prions
You can also find here our Talmudic Questions, which we characterize as those whose answers cannot be found in Google. We are told that some of these questions have been used in exams ranging from tests for undergraduate courses to qualifying/prelims for graduate students.
We include here items of special interest to teachers. Please send us your comments and suggestions for inclusion in this section.
