Course Description & Objectives: 

In this course, broad subjects in applied aspects of microorganisms and viruses in the environmental, food and medical microbiology; and biotechnology are covered. The basic concept of bio-production processes; applied molecular biology techniques in vaccine and drug discovery, tracking of infectious transmissible environmental microbes (e.g. food, zoonoses, biological warfare) and of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are also considered.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Objectives:

  • Review the molecular pathogenesis of microbial and viral agents
  • To acquaint the student with the molecular tools used for studying/investigating and detecting the microbial and viral agents
  • To impart knowledge on the principles of microbial vaccine development and drug discovery
  • To instruct students on the principles behind microbial applications within biotechnology and environmental sciences and to impart skills to screen and isolate useful microbes/genes for a given purpose
Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the course, the students should be able to:

  • Analyze the phylogenetic relationships of microorganisms and evaluate their potential for production of enzymes and other bioactive molecules.
  • Select and discuss basic and advanced methods for investigation of microorganisms in complex environments
  • Evaluate the application potentials of microorganisms in various fields of life
  • Identify new and improved candidate vaccine strains and drug targets for the important microbial and viral pathogens
