MICR 202 |  MICROBIOLOGY  (3 credits)
Prerequisite: "C" or higher in a college biology or chemistry course or Instructor approval.

Topics include microbial survey, bacterial structure and physiology, viral and bacterial diseases, immune system, personal and community health. A study of the characteristics and importance of microorganisms with emphasis on their identification, control, and relationships to health and disease. This course and BIOL 302 are equivalent. A general survey on the morphology and physiology of selected microbes with major emphasis on the medical aspects of bacteria, viruses, and fungi to humans.

  • Gain an appreciation of the diversity of microbes; in the context of this course, "microbes" include diverse organisms, e.g., viruses, bacteria, fungi, protists, and small worms.
  • Describe the structure and function of microbes.
  • Understanding diagnostic tests and procedures used to identify microbes.
  • Understanding the relationship between microbes, disease and the disease process.
  • The role of microbes in microbial ecology.
  • Understanding the roles of microbes in community health.

Offered: Fall & Spring
