Microbiology Science

Microbiology in simple words is the study of microorganisms.  Microbiology can be defined as the biology of microscopic organisms, or life too small to be seen with the naked eye.  It includes study of eukaryotes, such as fungi and protists, and prokaryotes. Viruses and prions, though not strictly classed as living organisms, are also studied. Microbiology typically includes the study of the immune system, known as immunology. Generally, immune systems interact with various pathogenic microbes and defend organism’s body against foreign attack. Microbiology and Immunology often interact with each other on many fronts.

 

Microbiology is amalgamation of several disciplines:

  • Virology (study of viruses)
  • Bacteriology (study of bacteria)
  • Mycology (study of fungi)\'
  • Parasitology (study of parasites)

 

A course in microbiology helps the student to apply knowledge in the field of fermentation, agriculture, soil studies, and marine environment.

  • Biomedical research, Creation of medicines
  • Environmental applications and New research tools
