Microbiology Lab Manual Illustrations

These illustrations were created for Microbiology for use in a lab manual. Metro does not condone use of copyright-protected graphics that may not be legally copied and distributed in the classroom, and that do not follow the guidelines of the Fair Use doctrine, so IDS designed custom illustrations that are now free for Metro's use. (See Fair Use on our website.)
