BIOS 518 - Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of living organisms that are usually too small to be seen with the unaided eye, including organisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae, and protozoa. Microbiology also includes the study of viruses and other acellular infectious agents. A major theme of this course is the relationship between microorganisms and humans. This relationship includes the harmful effects of microorganisms, such as human disease and food spoilage, as well as the beneficial effects of microbes, such as the use of microorganisms in modern biotechnology, biofuel production, and bioremediation.
