-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Apparently, it's Bio-Process but with single-celled organisms (bacteria, archaea, protists, even viruses [which I think are NOT organisms since they don't even have a cell structure]).

Okay, so I found an old event rules. At regs and states for division B, content includes: different kinds of microscopes and their uses, parts of the light microscope and determination of magnification, functions of the nucleus, mitochondria, and chloroplasts, and their possible origins, differences of viruses, bacteria, archaea, fungi, and algae-like and animal-like protists, role of microbes in decomposition of food and the food industry, and illnesses/conditions that may be caused by microbes and their treatment/prevention.

There's a LOT more. (Remember to use Google to find info...)

Right...but aren't these Division C trial event rules? Would it be different for Division B? (Not that the things you've described sound hard...but I think there may be some differences in the same event in different divisions)
EDIT: Never mind what I said above. Here are the draft rules: http://www.aug.edu/gaso/microbe_mission_rules.pdf

Uh, using microscopes, the basic parts of Bio-Process...?
EDIT: I don't think Microbe Mission would be as lab-ish as Bio-Process, but it still involves lab equipment so it can't exactly be considered at a study event.

It, as well as Bio-Process, may be extremely likely to be in the form of stations. Just saying

And melody, thanks much for newer rules. :D

I could see it as rotating stations with some written stations and others having you make a microscope observation or collect data.
ornithology, forestry, entomology, triple E, green generation, water quality, dynamic planet (lakes & rivers), awesome aquifers, meteorology, robot arm, write it do it. :)

okay, that makes more sense. thanks!
and regarding microbes, could they just ask about anything regarding to them? and is it based solely on microbes?
