BIOL 5315 Microbial Physiology and Genetics 3/3/3
Prerequisite: BIOL 3310
Microbial physiology is designed to illustrate that procaryotic organisms follow the same physiological rules and restrictions as eucaryotes. The course will illustrate the value of biophysical, biochemical, and thermodynamic principles to bacterial growth and function, and will utilize mathematical formulae to illustrate the basic principles of microbial reproduction. Microbial physiology will utilize problem solving to strengthen the ability of students to design, conduct, and evaluate biological experiments and data.
