Infectious diseases emphasizing the nature of the organisms, the interrelationship of microorganisms and human hosts, the prevention and control of infectious diseases, and a description of the important infectious diseases of humans.
Emphasis on the fundamentals of microorganisms, their growth and metabolism, disease pathogenicity, epidemiology, antimicrobials, host-pathogen interaction, and various human diseases caused by microbes.
Microorganisms, with special emphasis on the structure, function, and diversity of bacteria and their importance to man. Online lectures and examinations. THIS COURSE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE STARTING SPRING 2021.
Microorganisms, with special emphasis on bacteria, their structure, function, diversity, and importance to man.
Basic microbiology laboratory techniques to include aseptic technique, microscopy, use of media, analysis of morphological and biochemical properties, and experimental design.
Microorganisms with special emphasis on laboratory research being conducted at the University of Georgia.
General laboratory techniques in experimental microbiology with emphasis on microscopic, morphological, and biochemical analysis.
Independent research in the primary literature in selected areas of microbiology. Non traditional format: Directed Study.
Critical analysis and discussion of recent advances in microbiology research through oral presentation. Specific topics may vary but will emphasize molecular biology, physiology, and ecology of prokaryotes.
Ultrastructure, physiology, genetics, ecology, metabolic diversity, evolution, and phylogeny of bacteria and archaea.
Molecular biology and genetics of plant-microbe interactions, including infection processes by plant pathogens, initial signaling, signal transduction, and plant responses, and molecular analysis of disease resistance.
Offered Fall every even-numbered year.
Genome editing technology has exploded since the recent discovery of bacterial CRISPR systems. Our goal is to present the material while new applications are emerging every day and before a textbook is written! Cutting edge knowledge will enable you to shape the future.
Molecular genetics, physiology, and diversity of bacteria, as well as presentation of data in a poster or oral presentation format. Faculty who teach the course, together with additional faculty, will provide students with feedback on their presentations.
Use of recent publications on molecular characterization and analysis of RNA viruses to give students insight on virus genome diversity and evolution.
Provides information on the principles of fungal pathogenesis, diagnosis, and antifungal therapies, mechanisms of drug resistance, and relevant genetic and molecular tools to study human fungal pathogens and drug discovery. Provides basic training in reading scientific literature, presenting a…
Faculty-supervised independent or collaborative inquiry into fundamental and applied problems within a discipline that requires students to gather, analyze, and synthesize and interpret data and to present results in writing and other relevant communication formats.
Faculty-supervised independent or collaborative inquiry into fundamental and applied problems within a discipline that requires students to gather, analyze, and synthesize and interpret data. Students will write or produce a thesis or other professional capstone product, such as a report or…
