Course Description & Objectives: 

Students will be introduced to the world of microbes. The course intends to give learners the theoretical background to all aspects of microbiology that ultimately will help them in understanding practical applications in ther applied courses that deal will microbes. The course covers: The relevance and history of Microbiology; Microbial Cell structure and organization; Viral structure and function; Microbial Nutrition; Control of microbes;  Microbial Metabolism; Regulation of Metabolism; Genomics and Genetics of microbes; Eukaryotic microbial diversity; Bacterial diversity; Microbial ecology; Applied microbiology; and Microbial Methods Microbiology. 

Learning Outcomes: 

The overall objective of this course is to provide postgraduate students pursuing courses to build a career in plant pathology and microbiology with a thorough understanding of the biology of microbes that interact with plants either resulting into diseases or in a useful relationship. It is also meant to introduce learners to techniques used in microbial studies and to demonstrate the practical applications of microbes in crop production and the food industry.
