Microbiology covers the requirements for a single-semester microbiology course and presents the core concepts of microbiology, including Prokaryotic Diversity, Microbial Biochemistry and Mechanisms of Microbial Genetics. It also covers material for students considering applications for careers in this sector.

The content of this course has been arranged in a logical progression from fundamental to more advanced concepts, however since all of the lessons are supplied individually, you can use them in any order you choose. The first lessons present an overview of the discipline, with chapters focusing on microscopy and cellular biology as well as each of the classifications of microorganisms. Students then explore the foundations of microbial biochemistry, metabolism, and genetics, topics that provide a basis for understanding the various means by which we can control and combat microbial growth. Beginning with Microbial Mechanisms of Pathogenicity, the focus turns to emphasizing how interactions between microbes and the human immune system contribute to human health and disease. The last several Macros of the course provide a survey of medical microbiology, presenting the characteristics of microbial diseases organized by body system.

Microbiology has been developed and vetted with input from numerous instructors at institutions across the United States and aligns with the curriculum guidelines of the American Society for Microbiology.
