BIO 336 Microbiology (with Lab)

This four-credit lab course explores the unseen life on earth. The diversity of microorganisms, including the basics of cell biology and genetics, are examined. Students will gain a deeper understanding of how microbes shape the environment and their essential role in human life. Controlling microbes under special situations (e.g. food safety, hospitals), how the human body defends against microbial invaders, disease outbreaks, and current efforts to track and control infectious diseases are discussed.  PRIOR TO FALL 2019, THIS COURSE WAS OFFERED AS SCI 336.
