    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it was a great overview of microbial life. It taught concepts relating to genetics, metabolism, anatomy of microbes, and the harmful effects of antibiotic resistance. Dr. Buchmann is also very enthusiastic about teaching the course and she is usually available to help students.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the anatomy and functions of bacteria, viruses, single celled eukaryotes, and archaeans. The class then shifted focus to the gene regulation in bacteria. Then metabolism was covered. This included aerobic and anaerobic respiration, fermentation, bacterial photosynthesis, and chemoautotrophy. There was a focus on the metabolism of microbes in the gut and at deep sea vents. The class ended with a introduction to immunology and some of the dangers of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is not necessarily difficult, but it can be if you do not study. Reading the textbook is helpful to solidify your knowledge of the subject. If you can answer all of Dr. Buchmanns student learning objectives (SLOs) you should be able to do well on the tests. Do not wait until the night before the test to start studying!
