Microbiology and Microbial Genomics


Intended for majors and minors in biology as a comprehensive description of microbes, the most abundant and diverse organisms on the planet. Organized into four modules: the microbial cell, microbial genomics, microbial development and adaptation, and microbial interactions with the host and the environment. Through lectures and critical analysis of primary literature students examine how the advent of genomics has revolutionized microbiology, a scientific discipline that is more than a century old.
