Course Level

Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 02 - Critical Thinking
    • Gather factual information and apply it to a given problem in a manner that is relevant, clear, comprehensive, and conscious of possible bias in the information selected.
    • Imagine and seek out a variety of possible goals, assumptions, interpretations, or perspectives which can give alternative meanings or solutions to given situations or problems.
    • Analyze the logical connections among the facts, goals, and implicit assumptions relevant to a problem or claim; generate and evaluate implications that follow from them.
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.

Microbiology focuses on the classification, structure and function of microorganisms. Emphasis will be on bacteria, but the course also includes the fungi, protozoa, viruses, and parasitic helminth worms. Pathogenic organisms, the diseases they cause, the human immune response, and methods for controlling microbes are discussed, as well as environmental and applied (industrial) microbiology. Lab work includes aseptic procedures for working with living cultures, preparing microscope slides with staining techniques, and identification of microorganisms using various growth media and diagnostic tests. Prerequisite or equivalent: BIOL 1500 or BIOL 1550 or BIOL 1110 or BIOL 2000. Hours per week: Lecture-3; Lab-2. MnTC: 2/3
