Microbiology is essentially a practical science and an integral part of many aspects of everyday life. This subject illustrates this connection by involving students in a series of experiments that demonstrate the use and application of many basic microbiological techniques. Experiments investigate the culture and microscopic examination of bacteria, viruses and fungi, and explore ways of detecting the presence of bacteria in food and water samples and clinical specimens. Protocols to measure the growth of bacteria as well as procedures to control growth are examined. This subject prepares students for more advanced practical subjects by providing basic training in the way in which experiments can be executed, results evaluated and reports compiled.
Upon completion of this course students should have:
Satisfactory completion of the laboratory work and written reports, as well as a pass in the practical examination are necessary to pass this subject.
