Fall 2008 Replaced Fall 2011 Course Outline for Microbiology 1 MICROBIOLOGY

Catalog Description: 1 – Microbiology

5 units

Bacteria, fungi, protozoans, parasites, and viruses with an emphasis on their relationship to humans. Cultivation, control, metabolism, body's defense against disease, microbial genetics, laboratory tests, and contemporary diseases are discussed. Methods used in the laboratory include staining, investigation, cultivation, identification of unknowns, and sensitivity testing. Prerequisite: Biology 31, and Chemistry 30A or Chemistry 1A (both completed with a grade of "C" or higher). Strongly recommended: Anatomy 1, eligibility for English 1A . 3 hours lecture, 6 hours laboratory. Prerequisite Skills: Before entering the course, the student should be able to: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22, 23. 24.

describe and apply the scientific method and how it is used by scientists to further scientific knowledge; cite the characteristics and levels of organization exhibited by all living organisms; use the light microscope and dissecting scope; describe how cells/specialized cells are structured and function; describe basic cell metabolism; describe/contrast, mitosis and meiosis; describe structure, transmission and expression of genes; explain the Darwinian concept of evolution as modified by modern scientific knowledge; describe how the modern (binomial) system names and classifies organisms; make unit conversions in the metric system; describe the structure of the atom; perform calculations using the mole concept; identify properties of states of matter; write balanced equations for chemical reactions including those in aqueous solution and those involving elementary oxidation-reduction; describe properties of solutions; use Le Chatelier's principle to predict the qualitative effects of changes in concentration, temperature and pH on an equilibrium; perform laboratory experiments in an efficient, safe and purposeful manner; collect and analyze scientific data; perform titrations and volumetric analyses; write balanced chemical equations for oxidation-reduction reactions; calculate enthalpies of reaction using calorimetry, Hess's law, heats of formation and bond energies; describe the bonding in compounds and ions; explain chemical and physical changes in terms of thermodynamics; define all concentration units for solutions and solve solution stoichiometry problems.

Assignments and Methods of Evaluating Student Progress: 1.

Typical Assignments a. Lecture. Compare and contrast the cellular components of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. Discuss how these cells respond to antimicrobials in the context of their cellular structure b. Laboratory. Utilizing data gathered from the epidemiology exercise determine the rate of hand contact transmission of Serratia marcescens in a population. Plot the data in a chart and determine the prevalence of infection. Given an unknown culture determine by microscopy and biochemical tests the identity of the organisms. Proper use of aseptic technique and microscope use is assessed as well
