Lecture: 3
Lab: 3
General Education Course (SC)

Prerequisite(s): A grade of “C” or higher in BIOL 102 or BIOL 112.
Description: The biology of pathogenic micro-organisms will be stressed, emphasizing their microscopic and molecular aspects. Students will describe, in detail, the relationship existing between the host-parasite complex during the diseased state. They will also become acquainted with those characteristics which endow certain microbes with a pathogenic nature. Students will be able to list and characterize various pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoan parasites. Isolation and identification techniques in microbiology will be mastered by the student in the laboratory. The role of chemotherapy, immunology and serology used to combat pathogens will be examined thoroughly. Finally, the homeostatic defense mechanisms of the body, especially those against invading micro-organisms, will be discussed in great detail.
