MICR 680. Microbial Physiology. 3 Credits.

This class will explore the composition and function of eubacterial and archaeobacterial 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. {Also offered for undergraduate credit - see MICR 480.}.
