Modern Developments in Microbiologyvarious branches of microbiology have developed:o bacteriology – study of bacteriao mycology – study of fungio parasitology – study of protozoa and parasitic wormso immunology – study of how immunity reacts to various pathogenso virology – study of viruseso recombinant DNA technology – tinkering with genes and transference between speciesRecombinant DNA technology- Little progress in molecular genetics and molecular biology took place until we began studying these things in one-celled organisms in the 1940’s. Then rapid progress was made. 1941---1 gene 1 enzyme1944---DNA was identified as hereditary material1953--- Watson and Crick discovered structure of DNA1960’s--- more about the way DNA controls protein synthesis, discovery of mRNA, regulation of gene function, "cracked" the genetic code1970’s----beginning of genetic engineering-

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
