7. MiSACmatters 50th Anniversary Articles.
2019 marked the 50th year since the foundation of the Microbiology in Schools Advisory Committee. To celebrate this, MiSAC commissioned a collection of over 30 illustrated essays aimed at secondary school teachers and students, on a wide range of microbiology topics. A team of expert scientists was assembled from those active in the microbiology world in the UK and internationally, who enthusiastically supported this endeavour. See also A short history of MiSAC page.
