S4771: Microbes: friends and foes in HSSP Summer 2011 (Jul. 10, 2011)
Microscopic creatures are all around us! Come learn about their physiology and molecular biology, their evolutionary histories and the vast diversity of microbial species that exists today. We will learn both the ways in which microorganisms function and about the classic experiments that led to this knowledge. At the end of the class we will discuss how microorganisms affect humans, from destructive diseases to beneficial applications in industry.
