Microorganism

A microorganism (from the Greek: μικρός, mikrós, “small” and ὀργανισμός, organismós, “organism”) or microbe is a microscopic organism, which may be a single cell or multicellular organism. The study of microorganisms is called microbiology, a subject that began with Anton van Leeuwenhoek’s discovery of microorganisms in 1675, using a microscope of his own design.
