Microbiomics is the study of microbial communities. Microbial community analysis can be undertaken using classical microbiology techniques or the latest molecular biology techniques, and our C4 programs offer both. Join our community of students, teachers & schools, working scientifically together with Quantal Bioscience on real research projects, searching for microbes that make antimicrobials (C4AD), bioelectrogens (C4BD), and extremophiles (C4ED).
Or choose your class' or school's own adventure, and discover microbial communities of your own, with support from our scientists. Our C4 programs develop students' appreciation of the importance of science in their lives, and authentically engage students in first-hand investigations ultimately aimed at finding solutions to social and global issues, and shaping sustainable futures. Each C4 program provides opportunity for students to significantly extend their skills in Working Scientifically, and to develop Knowledge and Understanding of core and additional Stage 5 content in the Living World, and beyond.
