Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

General Chemistry

Intended learning outcomes

The course aims to give basic knowledge about micro organisms morphology, physiology and metabolism as well as ecology and evolution, including understanding for micro-organisms importance, both in nature as in medicine. The course should, furthermore, give the student practice in microbiological laboratory work.

Course content

Microorganisms basic structure and function and thier rolls in nature, amongst others taxonomy and classification of prokaryotes, microbe morphology, bacterial physiology, virus, antimicrobica, medical microbiology.

Teaching and working methods

The course includes lectures which give a theoretical summary of the subject and in certain degrees completes and/or explains the course literature. Laborations make up a great part of the course. They exemplify the theory and the results are presented and discussed at seminars.
