Microbiology for Non-Science Majors

CRT HRS:4   LEC HRS:3   LAB HRS:3   OTH HRS:0

This course is an introduction to the morphology, physiology and taxonomy of pathogenic microorganisms. In this course, students will be presented with basic knowledge about the discipline of microbiology, the study of disease transmission, resistance to infection, microbial control and a brief review of food microbes, public health and immunology. Emphasis will include methods for studying microbes, metabolism, growth, epidemiology, pathogenesis, and infectious diseases. Laboratory exercises will provide students with hands-on experience in studying microbiological applications and sound techniques in culturing, staining and identifying bacteria.

Prerequisite: BIOL 2402 with a grade of "C" or better.

BIOL 2421

Microbiology for Science Majors

CRT HRS:4   LEC HRS:3   LAB HRS:3   OTH HRS:0

This is a study of principles of microbiology, including metabolism, structure, function, genetics, and phylogeny of microbes. The course will also examine the interactions of microbes with each other, hosts and the environment. Laboratory activities will reinforce principles of microbiology as well as the microbial interactions including all of the principles and microbial interactions covered in the lecture sessions.

Prerequisite: BIOL 1406, BIOL 1407 and CHEM 1411 with a grade of "C" or better.
