Unformatted text preview: Civil and Environmental Engineering M166 Environmental Microbiology 4 units, Winter Quarter, 2012 Lectures: Mon. & Wed. 10-11:50 AM 5440 Boelter Hall Professor Shaily Mahendra 5732C Boelter Hall (310) 794-9850 E-mail: [email protected] Office Hours: Mon. 12-1 PM, Thu. 3-4 PM Teaching Assistant: Mavis Wong ([email protected]) Discussion Section: Fri. 10-11 AM, 5440 Boelter Hall Office Hours: Tue. 12:30 AM-2:30 PM, 6678 Boelter Hall Recommended Prerequisites: CHEM 20A, B, &L, CHEM 14B, CHEM 153, CEE 153 Environmental microbiology refers to the study of microbial communities, microbial interactions, and microbial processes in natural and engineered environmental systems. Microorganisms perform a variety of environmental roles, e.g., as primary producers, waste decomposers, drivers of global nutrient cycles, biofuel producers, and pathogens. This undergraduate course will cover fundamental microbiological principles in a quantitative engineering context to describe, predict, and design environmental biological systems. This course will be taught in an interactive, active-learning fashion, and it will be based on the textbook and primary literature in environmental microbiology. Required Text: Brock Biology of Microorganisms , M. T. Madigan, J. M. Martinko, P. V. Dunlap, and D. P. Clark. 2009. Prentice Hall, 12th Edition (QR41.2 .B77 2009).
