    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, those being unicellular (single cell), multicellular (cell colony), or cellular (lacking cells).[1] Microbiology encompasses numerous sub-disciplines including virology, mycology, parasitology, and bacteriology.

    Course highlights:

    Bacteriology: The study of bacteria. Mycology: The study of fungi. Protozoology: The study of protozoa. Phycology/algology: The study of algae. Parasitology: The study of parasites. Immunology: The study of the immune system. Virology: The study of viruses. Nematology: The study of nematodes. Microbial cytology: The study of microscopic and submicroscopic details of microorganisms. Microbial physiology: The study of how the microbial cell functions biochemically. Includes the study of microbial growth, microbial metabolism and microbial cell structure. Microbial ecology: The relationship between microorganisms and their environment. Microbial genetics: The study of how genes are organized and regulated in microbes in relation to their cellular functions. Closely related to the field of molecular biology. Cellular microbiology: A discipline bridging microbiology and cell biology. Evolutionary microbiology: The study of the evolution of microbes. This field can be subdivided into: Microbial taxonomy: The naming and classification of microorganisms. Microbial systematic: The study of the diversity and genetic relationship of microorganisms. Generation microbiology: The study of those microorganisms that have the same characters as their parents. Systems microbiology: A discipline bridging systems biology and microbiology. Molecular microbiology: The study of the molecular principles of the physiological processes in microorganisms. Other[edit] Nano microbiology: The study of those organisms on nano level. Exo microbiology (or Astro microbiology): The study of microorganisms in outer space (see: List of microorganisms tested in outer space) Biological agent: The study of those microorganisms which are being used in weapon industries. Predictive microbiology: The quantification of relations between controlling factors in foods and responses of pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms using mathematical modelling Applied microbiology

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Research has suggested that microorganisms could be useful in the treatment of cancer. Various strains of non-pathogenic clostridia can infiltrate and replicate within solid tumors. Clostridia vectors can be safely administered and their potential to deliver therapeutic proteins has been demonstrated in a variety of preclinical models. Most important is the fact that microbiology scientist are trained to be able to solve human health problems, in this case, as a field of science it provides solution and with in-depth research the microbiology scientist have the potential for discovering cancer cure.
