Description

Fundamental aspects of microbes with respect to identification and cultivation are studied. Lecture topics include a survey of the groups of microbes, and focus on the metabolic and genetic capabilities of the bacteria and viruses. Laboratory procedures acquaint the student with the preparation of culture media, aseptic technique, manipulation, identification and control of microbes, and will include specialized areas of microbiology such as food and environmental microbiology. Three lecture hours and two two-hour laboratories per week.
