This course offers an Introduction to the Biology of Microorganisms including Bacteria, Yeast, Protozoa (Parasites),and Viruses. Emphasis is on Identification, Growth Characteristics, Control, Physiology, Pathogenicity andRelationship to Health and Diseases.2. Microbial Mechanism of Pathogenicity.3. Students will be introduced to Biotechnology Research Methodology : Isolation of DNA, Restriction EndonucleaseTreatments, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) ,and Agarose Gel Electrophoresis from two bacterial specimen.IV.Learning Objectives:Specific Objectives of the course:The objectives of this course are for the students to become familiar with the basic concepts of Microbiology.Students will be required to perform experiments in the laboratory session to understand and determine the microbialmechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis.It is expected that students will have a clear knowledge of the understanding of microbial mechanism of pathogenesis;how various bacterial species (disease causing microorganisms) causes illnesses in humans.1.Learn cellular structure, characteristics, growth, cultivation and control of microorganisms.2.Learn microscopic staining techniques and bacterial identification (enzyme pattern) techniques.3.Learn energy generation and genetic characteristics of microorganisms.4.Survey characteristics of bacteria, algae, fungi, protozoa, and viruses.5.Learn nonspecific and specific host defenses, pathogenicity, transmission and control of transmission.6.Learn important human bacteria, viral, fungal and parasitic diseases.7.Learn research methodology, DNA biotechnology, and mechanism of bacterial pathogenesis.
V.Student Learning Outcomes:Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
