BIOL 190 Microbiology with Laboratory
The goals of this lecture/laboratory course are for students to learn about fundamental and 21st century microbiology principles including metagenomics, human microbiome, microbial fuel cells, and global climate change. The didactic portion of the course will be taught using live instruction with the emphasis on active learning during the class as well as small group activities. The laboratory exercises are designed to develop critical thinking and to familiarize the students with modern microbiology techniques and tests, clinical microbiology techniques, as well as expose the students to the field of microbial genetics and genomics. The course is designed to serve as a pre-requisite for students seeking careers in the health professions. Students may register for Lectures only, Laboratory only, or both.
