Objectives of the Course

The objective of this course is to give information about bacteria cell components, nucleus, and reproduction characteristics and to provide the ability to use this information.

Course Content

The internal and external anatomical structure of bacteria, microscopical and macroscopical morphologia of bacteria, ordering and determination of the bacterial sizes. The inorganic and organic materials which provide nutrition for bacteria, the growth properties of bacteria in liquid and solid media, the classification of bacteria based on the effect of O2, anaerobiosis and symbiosis. The chemical structure of bacteria, their pigments, enzymes and energy metabolisms.
