MCB-Microbiology

MCB 1000 Fundamentals of Microbiology . . . . . 3(S)
Prerequisite: CHM 1032 and CHM 1032L.
Corequisite: MCB 1000L.
An introductory microbiology course for non-science majors specifically designed to meet the microbiology pre-requisite requirement for the 4 year BSN degree. Will cover the principles of microbiology, including cellular organization, growth, and metabolism of major microbial groups (bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa); cultivation and control of microbes; and the interaction between microorganisms and humans as it relates to disease transmission, pathogenesis, control measures, and treatment. (General Studies Course: NS/LEC)

MCB 1000L Fundamentals of Microbiology Laboratory . . . . . 1(S)
Prerequisite: CHM 1032 and CHM 1032L.
Corequisite: MCB 1000.
An introductory microbiology laboratory course for non-science majors specifically designed to meet the microbiology pre-requisite requirement for the 4 year BSN degree. The lab will focus on basic microbiological techniques relating to isolating, growing, and identifying medically significant microorganisms. Laboratory exercises include microscopy and staining techniques; asepsis and culturing of microorganisms; appropriate handling techniques, including sterilization and disinfection; and methods of enumeration and identification of bacteria. Emphasis will be placed on those concepts and methods that are significant in the medical setting. Material and supply fee will be assessed. (General Studies Course: NS/LAB)

MCB 3020 Microbiology . . . . . 4(F,S)
Prerequisite: CHM 2045 and CHM 2046.
Corequisite: MCB 3020L.
Microbial morphology, physiology and taxonomy; relationships of microorganisms to total environment. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.

MCB 4274 Public Health Bacteriology . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: MCB 3020.
Epidemiology, diagnosis, and pathogenicity of the important pathogenic bacteria of pubic health concern. Offered concurrently with MCB 5275; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

MCB 4276 Epidemiology of Infectious Disease . . . . . 3(F)
Prerequisite: MCB 3020.
The basic principles of epidemiology as they apply to infectious disease and the impact of infectious disease on human civilization will be addressed. The causes and distribution of current epidemics of infectious disease, including newly emerging and reemerging diseases, and the approaches being applied to defeat these diseases will be discussed. Offered concurrently with MCB 5273; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

MCB 4603 Microbial Ecology . . . . . 3(S)
Prerequisite: MCB 3020, MCB 4653.
Ecology of microorganisms; relationships of microorganisms to microorganisms, plants, animals, and the environment. Offered concurrently with MCB 5605; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

MCB 4653 Applied Microbiology . . . . . 4(S)
Prerequisite: MCB 3020.
Corequisite: MCB 4653L.
Continuation of MCB 3020. Basic microbiology applied to uses and control of microorganisms in health and disease, industry, agriculture and other areas of human endeavor. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.

MCB 4710 Biology of the Protists . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: PCB 2131, MCB 3020.
Evolution, diversity, physiology, and ecology of unicellular eukaryotes. Comparative functional morphology and unique adaptations among protists. Offered concurrently with MCB 5715; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

MCB 4733 Marine Microbiology . . . . . 4(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: MCB 3020.
Corequisite: MCB 4733L.
Advanced biology, ecology and diversity of marine microbes. To define the past and current methodologies for the physiological, genetic, and ecological study of bacteria and their strengths and limitations. Offered concurrently with MCB 5735; graduate students are required to write a research paper and present it to the class. Material and supply fee will be assessed for corresponding lab.
