Best Universities for Microbiology in Africa

Below is the list of best universities in Africa ranked based on their research performance in Microbiology. A graph of 285K citations received by 13.1K academic papers made by 70 universities in Africa was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
