Section: 01  

Microbes are all around us and play significant role in our lives. This course will provide a strong foundation in the fundamental principles of microbiology. A particular emphasis will be placed on the molecular genetics of bacteria. The exchange of genetic material between bacterial species, the genetics of bacterial cell division, and the mechanisms of bacterial antibiotic resistance will be examined. The molecular mechanisms that underlie the pathogenesis of several bacteria will also be explored. Throughout the semester, the methodology used in modern microbiology labs will be integrated into the course material.
