After several months of hard work, updating the textbook, working on site design, and upgrading the code, the 5th edition of Through the Microscope is now ready. The new edition includes:

  • New information on bacterial division
  • An updated section describing the bacterial cytoskeleton
  • A completely updated Microbial Ecology section
  • A new more efficient site design that makes using the textbook easier
  • AJAX code that makes available new book tools for working with the textbook
  • and much more

The 5th edition is available by subscription using PayPal (or credit cards). Subscribers to the textbook can also download an eBook version (which has also been updated to a 5th edition). For those that prefer a book they can hold and take with them, you can purchase a print copy of Through the Microscope​ from See the Subscribe to the Book section at the bottom of this page for more information.
