Introduction to Environmental Microbiology 2018
The course provides a basic introduction to microbiology and microorganisms and explores their role in shaping the geochemistry of the earth. A survey of modern microorganisms and their activities of environmental and geochemical importance is an important foundation for the module, as is the way that metabolic processes catalyzed by microorganisms are related to major elemental cycles, biogeochemical processes and organic contaminant degradation. The most up to date molecular methods used to study the diversity and activity of microorganisms in their natural habitats are detailed, along with their benefits and limitations.
