Not screened yet but considering adding to the above list
To add to list
Other stuff about microbes but not quite bloggy enough for my list above
Microbiology related blogs that are appear to be no longer active or very rarely active
Twitter lists
Science Blogs Networks that might have some microbial content not listed above


  1. microBEnet



  3. There is a curated Microbiology in Social Media collection on Webicina.

  4. Some other good microbiology blogs are:

  5. The german outbreak E.coli 2011 crowdsourcing blog?

  6. Here is one to check out


  8. Would you consider adding my newly developing blog? It is Thank you.
