Welcome to Todar's Online Textbook of Bacteriology www.textbookofbacteriology.net. This textbook has evolved from online and live-in-person lectures presented in my bacteriology courses at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Its contents are suitable for reading or presentation in courses or course modules concerning general microbiology and medical bacteriology at the college and advanced high school levels of education. As an electronic text, new material is constantly being added, and current material is constantly being revised and updated. This is an inherent advantage of the web-based text over the tree-burner.
The textbook will never be complete, as the rate of production of new information in microbiology far outruns the author's ability to acquire and properly present it. If you have suggestions, comments or criticisms regarding the textbook or its contents, or the idea of this type of textbook, please send email to me at the address below. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
