Microbiology - CBMS215

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms and underpins many other areas of contemporary sciences such as medicine and biotechnology. This unit introduces the role of microorganisms in natural environments and disease and the ways they have been employed for practical benefits across the life sciences and industry. Lecture topics include microbial cell structure and function, microbial genetics, diversity and ecology, microbial growth and control, and a variety of topics in applied environmental and industrial microbiology. The hands-on laboratory sessions provide the students with essential skills and techniques used in microbiology and demonstrate principles taught in the lectures. This unit will be excellent for students majoring in biomolecular sciences, biology, environmental sciences and medical sciences.
