Beijerinck and the bioluminescent bacteria: microbiological experiments in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
TLDR
The revival of 90-year-old bioluminescent bacteria from Beijerinck's laboratory in Delft prompted a review of his work with these microorganisms and revealed their use in simple techniques for the investigation of, among other things, sugar metabolism in yeasts, oxygen generation and uptake and even the survival of microorganisms in liquid hydrogen.
The Discovery of Viruses and the Evolution of Vaccinology
TLDR
Louis Pasteur extended the work of Koch to formalize the concept of microbial attenuation, leading directly to his audacious experiments with live, attenuated anthrax vaccine in livestock and rabies vaccine in humans.
Remembering Our Forebears: Albert Jan Kluyver and the Unity of Life
TLDR
This essay argues that in contrast the careful characterization of fundamental microbial metabolism and physiology by Kluyver made many of the advances of the latter part of the twentieth century possible, by offering a framework which in many respects anticipated the current view of phylogeny.
The nineteenth century roots of 'everything is everywhere'
TLDR
Understanding Beijerinck's legacy for twentieth century microbial biogeography reveals issues that are still pertinent to contemporary discussions of microbial biodiversity andBiogeography.
Philosophy of Microbiology
TLDR
An introduction to philosophy of microbiology and philosophy in microbiology microbes in philosophy and further philosophical questions.

The Making of the Microbial Body, 1900s-2012
TLDR
It is argued that there was a reorientation of medicine, science and culture that engendered a new appreciation for and shed new light on the kinds of problems and questions that researchers in marginal microbiologies were struggling to make sense of earlier.
What did Darwin say about microbes, and how did microbiology respond?
