BIOL 436 PATHOGENIC MICROBIOLOGY

                                

Calendar Description of the course: An explanation of the general principles of microbial pathogenesis, the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved with specific bacteria, and the epidemiology of the various bacterial pathogens.  PREREQUISITES: Min. C- in BIOL210

 

SCOPE OF THE COURSE AND GENERAL LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

A significant portion of this course will deal with the study of interactions between the bacterial pathogen and its animal or human host.  This will include how structural and physiological features of the bacteria interact, adapt, and sometimes overcome the host defense mechanisms.  Although this course is not intended to be a clinical microbiology survey, specific well study pathogens will be discussed in detail as examples for the details on pathogen-host interactions.  Students are assigned specific pathogenic bacteria for literature research and presentations.

The laboratory techniques involve the use of classical and molecular test to identify differen species of Gram positive and negative bacteria
