This course is designed to provide a background in basic microbiology for students in allied health fields. Within each microbial group, pathogenic microorganisms are studied, including their effect on the human body, as well as their spread and control. The curriculum also includes microbial genetics, virology, and immunology. Laboratory exercises reinforce principles discussed in lecture and teach basic microbiological procedures such as aseptic technique and media preparation, as well as isolation, cultivation, and staining of selected microbes. Biochemical characteristics of microbes are also studied with regard to their importance in identification of disease.
