At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
Students completing Microbiology 5 will have demonstrated by written
examination that thet have a basic understanding of the following areas:
1.  Historical development of microbiology - microorganisms in the
   transformation of organic matter, germ theory, the development of
   molecular biology.
2.  Cell biology - cell organization and basic chemistry, general
   principles of molecular genetics and cell metabolism, procaryotic
   and eucaryotic cells.
3.  Methodology - pure culture, sterilyzation, cultivation, microscopy,
   protein separation and characterization.
5.  Virus - definition, cell interaction, replication, assay, isolation,
   and characterization.
6.  Microbial genetics - the genome, mutation, selection/adaptation,
   exchange and recombination regulation.
7.  Taxonomy - problems in bacteria, traditional and modern approaches,
   comparative taxonomy of selected groups.
8.  Symbiosis - types, functions, evolution and establishment.
9.  Disease - normal flora, human pathogens, mechanisms of pathogenicity,
   epidemiology, non-specific host defenses, the immune system,
   factors influencing resistance to infections disease, the historical
   perspective on infections disease, special problems of virus
   infections, chemo-therapy.
10. Applied microbiology - fermentation, genetic engineering, developments
   in wine and/or cheese making.

Representative Textbooks and Materials:
Untitled document
THE MICROBIAL WORLD, 5th ed. by Roger Y. Stanier, Prentice-Hall, 1986.
MICROBIAL BIOLOGY by Eugene Rosenberg and Irun Cohen, Saunders College,
1983.
These are the two most recently used texts. They both meet the needs of
this course quite well.
