Culture Microbiology Reviews
Culture Microbiology Reviews—serving microbiology since 1979
Culture has been publishing expert reviews for those interested to learn about areas of microbiology outside their immediate concerns for over 35 years. From the outset it was important that Culture became known for its science content and the publication has continued to track advances in microbiology until the present day.
From the first article by Dr. Martin Skirrow, a seminal piece on the role of Campylobacter in enteritis, articles have covered all fields of microbiology. Topics have been as diverse as from Antarctic microorganisms—coming in from the cold, to Mycobacteria and HIV—a deadly combination, microbiological control in the dairy industry, food hygiene and preservation, and one article describing the state of science before 1950 and predicting how it might become in the 1980s; a fascinating read!
