COURSE INTRODUCTION

Microbiology is a discipline of science that examines microbes. Microbes, small organisms that require microscopic tools for visualization, encompass bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi and protozoa. This discipline includes fundamental studies on the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, ecology, evolution and clinical aspects of microorganisms, including the host response (immune responses) to these agents and applied studies on Soil Microbiology, Water and Sewage Microbiology, Food and Industrial Microbiology.

The UG Curriculum designed by the department gradually exposes the student to all the above areas of Microbiology in a graded manner, over the three years. The course also introduces modern concepts like ‘omics’ ‘Gene manipulation’ and ‘Bioinformatics’ along with basic principles of classical and modern analytical techniques used for studying microorganisms or their processes. The curriculum also ensures that the student develops the right laboratory skills such that he/she is job ready.

The PG curriculum extensively deals with all the branches with certain topics like Cell biology, Biochemistry, Genetics dealt at a considerable depth.Topics like Research Methodology introduce the student to several aspects like experimental planning, and statistical tools for analysis and helps students with research aptitude to design and solve research problems. Applied Microbiology topics like Environmental Microbiology, Food, Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical Microbiology are included so that the studentsinterested in pursuing a profession in industry are appraised of practices followed by the industry and can pave way to their entry there.
