Hi to all!

I am a biochemistry student and I set up a small lab where I am trying to grow 
various stuff, like bacteria and mushrooms (yes, I know what you think, but that is 
NOT what I am interested in). I have a major problem though, wich is bacteria 
identification. Of course I have no microscope so I can`t identify them on shape. Is 
there any way I could identify with good certainty organisms by macroscopic aspect, 
like a computer program or good book,  given they are quite common and quite 
different also. For example, I have yellow colonies, like mustard and they shine (not 
mat). Thanks in advance...
