Description

Lecture material in the course is divided into four approximately equal sections and a first shorter section

  1. The first section examines the historical origins of microbiology as a science with a refection on who is engaged in our field and who is served by it historically and now
  2. The second section examines bacterial and eukaryal cell structure and function, and bacterial nutrition and cultivation
  3. The third section addresses the molecular biology of bacteria, including DNA replication, transcription and translation, regulation of gene expression, genomics, and bacterial viruses.
  4. The fourth section of the course covers microbial evolution, metabolic and ecological diversity, nutrient cycles, and symbiotic interactions.
  5. 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 and reading materials (units 2-5), as well as through various smaller stakes assessments (quizzes, and pre-class assessments of understanding based on engagement with the textbook, together with assessments of laboratory skills and reports.

 

Intended Audience:

The course is required for the Microbiology major, and it is appropriate for all other programs in Biology majors.

Class Format:

This course in microbiology consists of combinations of social reading platform interactions with the textbook materials, and two weekly 80 minutes interactive lectures that go over content highlights combined with more active engagement with the learning materials through thought questions that are worked through individually and in small groups, and one laboratory session each week. The laboratory sessions are designed to guide the development of skills in fundamental aspects of microbiological work.
