BIOL 302 - Microbiology

(4 cr) Part of the required curriculum in nursing and medical technology and a recommended elective for any biology student. The course will emphasize the impact of microbial activity on human health and disease, including the conditions contributing to microbial increase, spread and virulence, conditions contributing to the body responses leading to resistance and immunity, and methods of interceding in the usual etiology for the purpose of bringing about informed control. The non-medical aspects of microbiology also will be considered, in regard to the basic activities in interacting biological systems, as symbionts, as critical energy conversion agencies, as agents for driving biogeochemical cycles, and as experimental subjects for the discovery of basic biological principles such as intermediary metabolism and the genetic code. Prerequisites:  BIOL 211 ; OR CHEM 125  AND CHEM 125L ; OR permission of instructor.
