This course is focused on basic microbiology problems. Students will learn about microbial classification based on physiology and genetic properties, basic cell structure, cytology and morphology of bacteria, yeasts and fungi. They will study viruses at the levels of their molecular biology and genetics and their interactions with the host organism. Our coverage will focus almost entirely on viruses that infect humans and cause serious diseases. Students gain a detailed understanding of microbial metabolism and its importance for biotechnology processes. Another topic of this course is kinetic of bacterial growth and effects of outer factors on growth and reproduction of microorganisms. The basic genetic principles from the microbiology point of view will be revised (structure and function of nucleic acids, transfer of genetic information and its expression, mutations, recombination and non chromosomal heritability).
