The Department of Microbiology was placed in the Web Services Team queue in the Fall of 2012. The department opted to have their site redesigned using the Franklin Drupal theme, a theme that is being used on many sites with the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, including Classics, Comparative Literature, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, The Institute for African Studies, Philosophy, the Institute for Women's Studies, UGA en España, and Cellular Biology.
This theme has been designed to have a flexible layout for many different unit needs and a number of included Drupal modules for added functionality. The Web Services Team created an icon for the Microbiology department in collaboration with the department, which is part of the department's branding.

The Web has become a place where Franklin units and organizations first present a face to the world. New admissions, presenters, visiting faculty, collaborative researchers, alumni, and a host of other publics determine where they want to devote their time and resources by seeing how units present themselves. The Web provides a way for units to let people know what's happening in their departments, centers, institutes, and programs, so that the world at large can experience the variety of research and education taking place in the Franklin College. Find out how the Web Team can help you design a usable and visually interesting web design.
The Web has moved beyond the display of static information, and many users expect an interactive and dynamic experience when visiting websites. Franklin units often have the need for more complex applications to meet this expectation and to provide a more up-to-the-minute display of data. The Franklin Web Team can provide development services for creating interactive, database-driven applications for Franklin units. Some of the applications developed by the team are used by one or two units, while others, such as SARA and Course Evaluations are used by multiple units across the college. Find out how the Web Team can help you develop an interactive application to suit your needs.
