As you read through the History of Microbiology, you will realize that each scientist has contributed significantly to mold the field to what it is today. Pick two contributors that you think have impacted the field significantly. Explain why you think their contributions made a difference.It is absolutely all right for two students to pick the same scientists as long as they respond to/comment on colleagues who have selected different contributors. While there are many contributors in the field, for the sake of this discussion, limit your pick to the ones included in your textbook (listed below for your convenience). Your post should be a minimum of 200-word count with no penalty if you exceed the word limit. Please cite the textbook in your discussion as a source.
Scientists: Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, Louis Pasteur, Eduard Buchner, Robert Koch, Christian Gram, Ignaz Semmelweis, Joseph Lister, Florence Nightingale, John Snow, Edward Jenner and Paul Ehrilch.
