In chapter 1, you read about the important contributors and their contributions to the history of microbiology. Each of these individuals were vital to the progression of the study of microbes and to the understanding of how microorganisms affect the environment and human society.
Part 1: of the scientists named in your text who contributed to microbiology, which of them do you feel made the most significant contribution? Start a new discussion thread with the name of the scientist followed by your name. Explain in 1000 words why you chose this scientist. Make sure to back up your choice with research: name some of their significant achievements and how that changed the study of microbiology.
Since your initial thread and responses will entail some research, you are to use a valid, preferably primary source material beyond your textbook and lab manual. You are required to use at least one resource per thread/response (3 minimum). Make sure to use appropriate internal citations and a Works Cited at the end of each of your discussions. MLA or APA format only.
