Certificate In Microbiology I

Course Description

Microbiology is the study of all living organisms that are too small to be visible with the naked eye. This includes bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungi, prions, protozoa and algae, collectively known as 'microbes'. These microbes play key roles in nutrient cycling, biodegradation/biodeterioration, climate change, food spoilage, the cause and control of disease, and biotechnology. 

Veterinary microbiology deals with the various microbial (bacterial, fungal, viral) diseases in animals especially that supply food, other useful products or companionship.
