MICR3032 Molecular Microbiology Concepts
Note: Students undertaking a major in microbiology must take MICR3042 or MICR3942.This Unit of Study introduces students to key areas of research in molecular microbiology. Building on knowledge gained in MICR2012 and MICR2022, as well as MBLG1001, it brings in areas of microbial evolution, pathogenesis, physiology, ecology, biotechnology and genetics, with each key theme explored with a series of 6 lectures led by an expert in the field. Lectures will be complemented with practical/tutorial sessions that explore recent research in these areas. It is strongly recommended that students also take the complementary unit of study MICR3042 or MICR3942. One of these two units is a required co-requisite for students completing a major in Microbiology.
