'This treatise is an introductory book for fresh students entering into the field of microbiology. The fundamental techniques, which are basic to all laboratories involved in microbiological and associated works, have been described with illustrations. Moreover, concise information about different microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, microscopic fungi and microscopic algae has been given so as to acquaint the students with these microbes before starting any experiment on them. A total of 55 experiments have been described in a step-wise manner along with illustrative flow diagrams for all the experiments.
