Bachelor of Science in Microbiology

  /  Bachelor of Science in Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of organisms that can be cultured on growth media, isolated, and sterilized and are usually invisible to the unaided eye. The scope of microbiology involves the study of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa, their characteristics, behavior, interactions, and applications in various fields including healthcare, agriculture, industry, environmental science, and biotechnology. It encompasses understanding microbial diversity, physiology, genetics, pathogenesis, ecology, and the development of diagnostic methods, treatments, vaccines, and biotechnological processes.
