ENV 205 - Environmental Microbiology


Credits: 3

The foundation concepts in microbiology that are important in environmental systems will be explored in this course. This will include the function and formation of cellular components starting from basic molecules (carbohydrates, fatty acids, amino acids, nucleotides) to the cellular structures that are formed (membranes, proteins, and the nucleic acids RNA & DNA); carbon, energy, and nutrient sources required for cellular growth; and the metabolic pathways for substrates common in environmental systems will be shown. Biodegradation and growth kinetic models will be introduced. Global cycles of major elements (i.e. carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, etc.) will be explored.

Repeatable: May not be repeated for credit
