Food mikrobiology studies the microorganisms joined with food, both in natural microbiot and spoilage microbiot and food born pathogens. In chosen collection of microorganisms the effect of environmental factors is studied in natural and model conditions. Methods for the detection and identification of followed microorganisms are presented in a wide scale, starting with standard cultivation protocols up to molecular biology procedures. The essential prerequisite of this subject is a degree of mikrobiology and biochemistry.
