BIO220_1

Microbiology

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.


The course/lectures will present the cell biology of microorganisms, their biochemistry/metabolism, molecular genetics, systematics and ecology. The laboratory course will teach basic methods in microbiology.

Learning outcome

The student should know the different cell components and the structural, metabolic and phylogenetic diversity among prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms as well as the theories of their evolution. The student has a basic knowledge on virology and microorganisms in various symbiotic interactions. The student knows the diversity of microbial metabolism and their importance for ecosystems and nutrients cycles.

Contents

The course/lectures will present the cell biology of microorganisms, their biochemistry/metabolism, molecular genetics, systematics and ecology. Especially will various symbiotic interactions between microorganisms and higher organisms be lectured, and new articles will be used to place the subjects into a social context. The laboratory course will teach basic methods in microbiology.

Coursework requirements

Laboratory course
Electronic HSE-course must be completed and approved before access to the laboratory can be given.
Mandatory lab assignments are to be completed at the times and in the groups that are assigned and published. Absence due to illness or other reasons must be communicated as soon as possible to the laboratory personnel. One cannot expect that provisions for completion of the lab assignments at other times can be made, unless prior arrangements with the laboratory personnel have been agreed.
Failure to complete the assigned labs on time or not having them approved will result in barring from taking the final exam of the course.
