The lectures describe the basic biology of microbial life, with emphasis on bacteria (Domain Bacteria and Domain Archaea) and information on eukaryotic microbes (protists, fungi, and unicellular algae) of Domain Eukarya.

Lecture material in the course is divided into four approximately equal sections.

  1. The first section examines the historical origins of microbiology as a science; bacterial and eukaryal cell structure and function, and bacterial nutrition, cultivation, and carbon and energy metabolism.
  2. The second section addresses molecular biology of bacteria, including DNA replication, transcription and translation, regulation of gene expression, genomics, and bacterial viruses.
  3. The third section of the course covers microbial evolution, metabolic and ecological diversity, nutrient cycles, and symbiotic interactions.
  4. The final section of the course describes medically related topics, including host-pathogen interactions, epidemiology, immunology, and bacterial, viral, protozoan, and fungal pathogenesis.

Course Requirements:

Grades for the course are based on four exams from lecture material together with assessments of practical skills and laboratory reports.

Intended Audience:

The course is required for the Microbiology concentration, and it is appropriate for the Biology and the Cell and Molecular Biology concentrations.

Class Format:

This course in microbiology consists of two one and a half hour lectures and one three-hour laboratory session each week.

The laboratory sessions are designed to guide the development of skill in fundamental aspects of microbiological work.
