The study of mocroorganisms, immunobiology, immunologic disesases, host resistance and the means by which diseases are produced and prevented.
Critical discussion of current literature/concepts. Participants present published research papers on topics with a molecular biology component. Presentations are followed by discussion/evaluation of the contribution of the research.
This course will present the major aspects of the field of medical microbiology with emphasis on selected pathogenic organisms.
Pre-req: BMS 600.
This course will present a continuation of the major aspects of the field of medical microbiology with emphasis on the major pathogenic organisms.
Pre-req: BMS 600 and MCB 631.
An advanced treatment of microbiology with emphasis on the molecular aspects of anatomy, taxonomy, and physiology and genetics of microorganisms.
Basic principles of the immune response system of humans and related mammals. Concepts of B & T cell function and interrelationships emphasized.
An in depth study of molecular mechanisms of bacterial, viral, and immune-mediated disease processes.
A comprehensive survey of methodologies used to detect and characterize viral specific antibodies and antigens and the status of cellular immunity in virus infected hosts.
Pre-req: MCB 620.
Basic principles of the immune response system of humans and related mammalian representatives. The concepts of B and T cell function and their interrelationships will be emphasized.
Independent Study in Microbiology is designed to allow the student the opportunity to work with a faculty member on a topic of special interest.
