Microbiology deals with the study of microorganisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye. This includes bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and algae, and are collectively known as 'microbes'. Generally they are categorized into unicellular, multicellular and acellular organisms.
This course covers the structural and functional organisation of these microorganisms, primarily bacteria followed by fungi and viruses. We have also classified medically important bacteria in the form of separate lectures.
