Microorganisms and their activities are vital to virtually all processes on Earth. Microorganisms are important because they affect every aspect of our lives - they are in us, on us, and around us.

Microbiology is the study of all living organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye. This includes bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungi, prions, protozoa, and algae, collectively known as "microbes". These microbes play key roles in nutrient cycling, biodegradation/biodeterioration, climate change, food spoilage, disease causation and control, and biotechnology. Because of their versatility, microbes can be used in many ways: to make life-saving drugs, to produce biofuels, to clean up pollution, and to produce and process food and drink. 

Microbiologists study microbes, and some of the most important discoveries that have underpinned modern society have come from the research of famous microbiologists, such as Jenner and his smallpox vaccine, Fleming and the discovery of penicillin, Marshall and the identification of the link between Helicobacter pylori infection and peptic ulcers, and zur Hausen, who identified the link between papillomavirus and cervical cancer.
