Additional office hours may also be scheduled by appointment. E-mail : Elisabeth.Thompson-Eagle@rcc.edu Website : http://academic.rcc.edu/thompson-eagle/ Required Text: Foundations in Microbiology, K.P. Talaro latest (older editions may be acceptable). Welcome to Microbiology 1 Lecture! This course is an introduction to the major groups of microorganisms & the diseases they cause. We will study the general characteristics of microbes including their morphology, metabolism, growth, reproduction and control. We will also explore the role of microorganisms in disease and body defenses. Emphasis will be placed on microbial applications and techniques relevant to the biomedical field for students entering health related professions. PREREQUISITES : CHE-2A & any ONE of the following: AMY 2A, 2B, 10, BIO1, 2A, 2B, 5, 8, 11, 12 or 34. PRIOR TO ENTRY to this course, you should be able to: Solve basic level problems relating to the metric system, unit conversions and dilutions. Relate the principles of chemistry to biological molecules. Describe the basic chemical structure and function of biological molecules. Describe the nature of chemicals & their properties, chemical bonding, reactions, mixtures, atoms, molecules, acids, and bases. Analyze experimental results and utilize scientific method BY THE END OF THIS COURSE , you should be able to: Describe the contribution of important figures in microbiology. Compare and contrast the major taxonomic groups of microorganisms. Compare and contrast the structure and physiology of prokaryotic & eukaryotic cells. Be able to define the major biochemical molecules and explain the important biochemical pathways. Apply the principles of microbial physiology and metabolism to their growth requirements and control in vivo and in vitro . Relate genotype to phenotype, inventory the mechanics of microbial reproduction. Explain the genetic mechanisms of microbial variability, including its role in the development of antibiotic resistance. Compare nonspecific with specific defense mechanisms.
