Microbiology
MICROBIOLOGY [Greek: micros,  small + bios, life + logos, discourse] The earliest recorded attempt to view microscopic organisms was made in 1658 by Athanasius Kircher (1601–1680), a Jesuit priest. He examined blood in plague victims in his primitive microscope with a magnification of only 32, and described what he saw as  ‘worms’ of plague in Scrutium Pestis . Antoni van Leeuwenhoek (1632–1723), a Dutch lens maker described ‘animalcules’, mostly protozoan organisms in 1674. He also identified and described bacteria from samples of material taken from his teeth. Modern microbiology was established by Louis Pasteur (1822–1895) with his study of the chemical activities of microorganisms in 1857. The link between microbiology and biochemistry was further strengthened by Russian microbiologist, Sergei N. Winogradskyaround 1900.
