Spotlight on Fall Microbiology Course

Plant and Microbial Biology C112 is a great fall course taught by Associate Professor Kathleen Ryan, an outstanding Kathleen Ryanlecturer with a passion for microbiology. 

Although invisible to the naked eye, microbes are everywhere! There are good and bad microbes, and their role in biology is profound and fundamental. Microbes play a key role in human and plant health and in the environmental cycling of nutrients such as carbon, nitrogen, and iron. 

This general microbiology course will focus on bacteria and explore the fundamentals of their growth, metabolism, cell structure, adaptive responses, and interactions with other organisms. We will examine techniques for studying bacteria, including genetics, microscopy, genomics, biochemistry, and ecological methods.
