Citation?[edit]

I am not entirely sure what the first citation is actually citing. I fixed it as it was an improper format; however it was a journal abstract and I was not sure of the relationship between the journal and the statement made in the article. A. Z. Colvin • Talk 03:04, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

This article is a mess![edit]

Medical microbiology is a simple concept and has a simple explanation. The content of the article is confused and cannot manage to separate general microbiology from medical microbiology, the latter from Infectology (with clinics) and Epidemiology (with transmission routes)! General Microbiology/Medicine/Infectology/Epidemiology are not Medical microbiology. This needs an entire rewrite. This article is a jumble/heap of poorly referenced research and examples from a wide range of issues bordering with medical microbiology. Articles like this create many problems because students read them, accept them as fact, and then professors to spend hours trying to unteach this rubbish. GenOrl (talk) 01:04, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
