Microbiology is the study of all organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye. In this course, you will study the differences between bacterial, viral and protozoan diseases. You will also learn how the organisms are transmitted, their pathology and epidemiology, and how their host may be treated. Students of microbiology will receive hands-on training in aseptic technique, streaking for isolation, Gram staining and basic microscopic work. Students will also do a comparative analysis between the nonfictional book The Hot Zone and the movie based on the book, Outbreak.
