With the current Ebola outbreak in Liberia and Sierra Leone, the interest in microbiology and public health is rising, as there are concerns about the outbreak spreading to more people within those countries and to other parts of the world such as the United States.  Indeed, there is interest worldwide in detecting diseases such as Ebola so that public health officials can act quickly to contain them and protect the public health.
