If they are posted the same week, we will bring printed versions for you. Objectives: The major goal of the course is that each student understands the biology, diversity, and role of microorganisms that inhabit the human body, and their role in health and disease. Students will learn approaches used to solve research problems concerning these organisms. In addition, students will interpret the primary literature to evaluate the current state of this rapidly changing field. Research Articles: The study of the normal microbes of the human body and their role in disease is a rapidly changing field. Therefore, we will not be using a textbook, but will rely solely on review articles and primary research articles. These papers will complement topics discussed in class the week they are assigned and will be accompanied by study questions and key word definitions.
