COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CH457 MICROBIOLOGY 2020 1 Chemistry & Life Science 3.5 (BS=3.5, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course introduces the diversity of microorganisms in all three domains of life. The course covers prokaryotic cell structure and function, growth, genetics, and metabolism. The course will survey five major groups of microorganisms: eubacteria, archaea, protozoa, fungi and viruses including ecology, their role in human disease and their applications in medicine, industry and warfare. Cadets have the opportunity to explore both a viral and a bacterial disease in-depth and present their findings in a briefing and a paper. The 18-hour laboratory program focuses on practical applications of concepts covered in class, with a particular emphasis on the eubacteria. The lab program culminates with a hands-on laboratory examination.

CH457 MICROBIOLOGY 1997 2 Chemistry & Life Science 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course is an introduction to general microbiology. Material begins with a review of general chemistry and its applications to the field of microbiology. The course continues with coverage of a broad range of information with emphasis on microorganisms in the disease process, applications of microorganisms in ecology, sewage disposal, food production, and molecular biology. Laboratories will focus on reinforcing lecture material with practical applications. Labs will cover culture, growth, and identification of microorganisms, effects of environmental factors and antimicrobial agents, microbiology of water, bacterial genetics, and medical microbiology.
