This class will explore the composition and function of eubacterial and archaebacterial cell structure. Further functional exploration will go into nutrient transport in bacteria, principles of energy-yielding carbohydrate metabolism, bacterial fermentation, respiration, and gene regulations of metabolic pathways. Topics such as biofilms, quorum sensing, and the microbiome will be used to apply physiological concepts. Prereq: MICR 350, MICR 350L. Co-req: BIOC 460. {Also offered for graduate credit - see MICR 680.}.
