I very much appreciate your clearing up the original post. I know a
little bit more now about this very complicated subject.
I remember that one of my professors, a newly minted Ph.D. in Micro, was
doing some kind of work in "outer space microbiology" way back in 1968.
I've often wondered if he continued to pursue that direction. He just
retired from the biology department of my alma mater this spring, after
attaining the lofty title of department head, so he obviously had
managerial aspirations also. I can't be that old, can I?
I have a Yahoo Micro continuing education group. I have over 100
members, but the only one that seems to post is me 95% of the time.
You're right - micro people just aren't chatty.
If anyone out there is interested in Clinical Microbiology (i.e. when
doctors order cultures on specimens taken from humans in an outpatient
or inpatient setting - nothing philosophical here :-)) please check out
my group site at:
I have bookmarks to online CE sites, and also weekly quiz questions
centering around organism identification. Spammers will not be tolerated
and will be immediately terminated. Anyone else with a sincere interest
in clinical micro is welcome.
Thanks, Davin, for your lengthy and interesting explanation.
