This foundational course explores the history and diversity of microorganisms, prokaryote and eukaryote cell structure and function, metabolism and growth, microbial genetics and the relevance of microbiology to other areas of biomedical science. The nature of interactions between bacteria, viruses, fungi and protists and other parasites with humans and their impacts on public health are also discussed.
This course contains a highly recommended residential school for external students and highly recommended on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students (non-attendance will mean the student misses both an element for assessment preparation and an element of assessment).
