New teaching videos available from Microbiology at NUI Galway, Ireland

Check out our new teaching initiative, just launched by Microbiology at NUI Galway, Ireland: 40 instructional videos, of ~5-8 mins in length, each demonstrating a different laboratory technique in microbiology.

Methods range from basic plate pouring and culturing, through microbiological and biochemical identification tests, to DNA and protein analysis techniques.

They are freely available on a dedicated YouTube channel at Microbiology teaching videos at NUI Galway: (

and we are happy to offer them to all students and researchers in microbiology and biological sciences as an aid in their work.

There’s also an introductory video ( to give a flavour of the project. Feel free to incorporate into your teaching / work, and to flag to colleagues who may wish to use this video-learning resource.
