I. Class overview: everything is posted on Sakai.
1. Please read the syllabus!. Most information regarding this class is addressed there.
2. Lecture outlines will aid you in determining information for which you will be held responsible i
Growth for bacteria
A. Prokaryotic Binary fission (Fig. 4.1, Table 4.1)
Generation or doubling time- the time it takes for a cell to reproduce under optimal conditions.
Results in exponential growth. To determine the number
1. Know Key Terms and read section 5.1
2. How to determine what to use to control microbial growth? (Read Chapter 5.2)
A. You first have to determine:
Ability of microbe to resist treatment. Why are these more resistant?
Vaccines and Immunity
1. Passive versus Active immunity (Fig. 18.2).
A. Passive immunization-involves the transfer of antibodies from an immune individual to a nonimmune individual. Temporary. Can be artificial or naturally occurring.
Chapter 16 and 19- (we will be covering the rest of Chapter 16 as we get to specific mechanisms
for individual pathogens).
I. Chapter 16 (Introduction, Ch. 16.1)
1. Symbiotic versus parasitic organisms
Microbial Genetics: Please watch the assigned animations!
Microbial gene regulation
1. Viral genetics (Fig. 13.14)
A. Biosynthesis of DNA viruses1. Mostly often replicate in the nucleus.
2. Require genome to be double stranded to generate mRNA from infe
DNA/RNA/Protein for prokaryotes (You are assigned the animations listed on the class
resource site and the HHMI animations.)
1. DNA/RNA/Protein Overview (Fig. 7.1 and Fig. 7.4)
A. Structure: Antiparallel (Fig. 7.2)-two separate directions (look at final e
Antibiotics and Resistance
A. Key players
1. Paul Erlicha. Wanted to find a magic bullet.
b. Salvarsan-first antimicrobial agent
2. Alexander Fleming-(Fig. 20.1)- Penicillium (mold)
3. Ernst Chain and Howard Florey- Were successfu
The Acquired Immune System
I am going to go through this chapter in a slightly different order than it is presented in the text, but
we will cover the entire chapter.
1. Characteristics of the immune response. Remember, both arms of the immune system are
