The development of the microscope, along with the observations of various scientists, led to the discovery of microorganisms. It is thanks to Van Leeuwenhoek who is largely credited with the discovery of microbes, and Hooke who is credited as the first scientist to describe live processes under a microscope, Spallanzani and Pasteur who performed several experiments that demonstrated that microbial life does not arise spontaneously, Cohn who laid the groundwork…
