This PDF contains the course materials for our "Art of Microbiology" laboratory course, intended for undergraduate biology majors. Students isolate soil bacteria and use them to create living works of art, then use the observations of interactions within the art as a platform for developing their own research projects.

These materials are definitely works in progress, and contain large gaps that are filled in practice with a variety of handouts and materials from other sources. We plan to continue updating this lab manual over time; future versions will be posted here in version control.
