Course overview

Microbiology is the study of those life forms that are essentially unicellular and mostly too small to see with the naked eye. It is an exciting and rapidly developing area of the life sciences and underpins much of the molecular biology and medical developments that are revolutionising our lives. Progress in our knowledge and understanding of life at this level has contributed to major developments in many areas of biology including genetics, biomedical science, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, agriculture and ecology and environmental processes.
