A microbiologist studies microbial processes at the cellular and molecular level.

What will you study?
Topics include:

  • Microbial and molecular genetics

  • Bacterial physiology

  • Biomembranes and cell surfaces

  • Virology

  • Molecular biotechnology

  • Microbial genome structure & gene regulation

  • Microbial pathogenicity

  • Applied & environmental microbiology

  • Microbial proteomics

  • Molecular protozoology

  • Molecular biology of yeasts

  • Medical & clinical microbiology

Microbiology is closely related to microbial genetics and biochemistry. Students take complementary courses from these disciplines. Laboratory training covers the safe handling of pathogenic microorganisms, separation of their components and products, research technologies, genetic analysis and biotechnological techniques
