You'd expect microbes to be high on the research agenda at the National Institutes of Health, but many other federal agencies sponsor or conduct investigations of the bugs, from the Department of Defense to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Visitors can discover more about these efforts at The Microbe Project. The new portal offers a synopsis of each agency's microbiological research, often providing links to projects, databases, and other resources. The site also furnishes news and an education section, which includes information on fellowships and mentoring programs.
