Prerequisites:

BIOL 11000 or 11100 or 12100 or 13100 or 20300 or 23000 or 30100 and CHM 11200 or 11600 or beginning fall 2011 CHM 10901

Description:

 

Microbiology is a rapidly expanding field of study, currently drawing information from and contributing information to nearly all the sciences from cellular chemistry to global climate change.  Microbiologists are called upon to address issues in medicine, food science, agriculture and biotechnology.  A thorough introduction to the subject is important for students in many disciplines.  Although Bio 22100 is an introduction, most students will find it a challenging course due to the breadth of science that even basic microbiology encompasses.  We will cover the following topics: biochemistry; microscopy; bacterial physiology; growth and metabolism; growth control ; genetics and its modern applications; immunology; pathogenesis, including specific microorganisms of medical importance; agricultural and environmental microbiology; and food microbiology.  After successfully completing Bio 22100, a student will have the background in microbiology necessary for further study in medicine or allied health sciences, microbial ecology, antimicrobial pharmacology and related disciplines.  He or she will also have an understanding of the microbiological diversity in the biosphere, and be better prepared to appreciate the extent to which microbiology shapes our daily lives. NOTE:  Not available for credit toward graduation for majors in the Department of Biological Sciences.
