A better online microbiology simulation

VUMIE is a “flight simulator” for the Microbiology lab, a simulation that requires the same heads-on, hands-on effort students must master in the wet lab. ┬áIt provides meaningful practice for microbiology students, tests students’ micro lab skills and knowledge, and for the past 25+ years has been a basic component of many face-to-face, online, and hybrid microbiology labs taught worldwide.

In 2023, VUMIE Online became the latest version of this award winning software. It features a new look, more structure for teaching microbiology, and a more versatile collection of activities and resources for students and instructors…all centered around its tried and true simulation.
