Microbiology is an overview of microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa), inclu
ding their structure, how
they grow, how they are classified, how they cause disease, and how they are transmitted and maintained in the
human population and the environment.

Passing
Human Anatomy & Physiology
II and Chemistry 100 (or
high school
chemistry
)

with a “C” or better are prerequisites for the course.


II. Course Outcomes and Abilities


1.

Demonstrate an understanding of fundamental microbiology principles, including the following:



The molecular anatomy of bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa.



How m
icroorganisms obtain and utilize energy.



How bacteria and viruses replicate, the conditions required for replication, and how replication can be inhibited.



Principles of microbial genetics, including DNA replication, gene expression, and gene transfer.



Cha
racteristics of medically important microorganisms.



Interactions that occur between microorganism and host that result in disease and recovery from disease.


2.

Apply knowledge of microbiology principles to social, industrial, and medical problems.


3.

Demonstra
te knowledge of the scientific method and apply principles of scientific thinking to the field of microbiology.



Practice the scientific method, including observation, formation of hypotheses, experimentation, drawing of
conclusions, and communication of th
ose conclusions.



Develop basic microbiology laboratory skills including microscope use, aseptic technique, and culturing and
identification practices.


In addition to the content and methodology of each discipline, all transfer courses also teach students
important cross
-
curricular
abilities

essential to lifelong learning.


In this course, students will have the opportunity to practice and be
assessed on
Analytical Reasoning (AR)


Analytical reasoning involves the ability to apply learning in familiar and
new contexts, to use appropriate methods of inquiry/exploration to achieve a result, to support claims with evidence,
and/or to demonstrate an understanding of issues, problems, and perspectives.

V. Grading


Unknowns
: You will be given an unknown bacterial culture to identify. You will perform a variety of lab tests in
order to identify the genus and speci
es of the bacteria. You will turn in an
Unknown Identification Report

to report the
results of each lab test you performed, explain your interpretations of the results, and identify the name of your
unknown bacterium.


Exams:

Exams will consist of a mixt
ure of essays, short answer questions, fill in the blank, multiple choice, and
matching questions. Exams will cover material from the study objectives, worksheets, class lectures and discussions,
and the textbook. Lab practical exams will cover the backg
round material, procedures, and questions from each lab.
The final exam will cover all topics discussed during the quarter and
will be similar in format to other exams.


Presentations:

In groups of

two or
three, you will be required to give an end of quar
ter presentation (
2
0 minutes in
length) on the microbial disease of your choice. Your presentation will include the structure of the microorganisms,
how the microorganism causes disease, and how the disease progresses and is treated. The presentation is wo
rth 50pts.
Guidelines and grading criteria are discussed in the “
Guidelines for Microbiology Presentations
” handout.

Attendance
during all presentations is mandatory. Five points will be deducted from your grade for every presentation missed.


Microbiolog
y in the News:

Microbiology is not only an academic pursuit. It has many applications to the lives of
people everywhere. To encourage you to pay attention to microbiology in the world, you must collect three articles
(from newspapers or magazines) that re
late to material covered in class. You will submit
an article

(along with a brief
summary and explanation

of how it relates to class) on
the dates indicated in the course schedule.

The intention of
this assignment is that you find articles in the newspape
rs or magazines that you normally read during the quarter (as
opposed to specifically searching for articles on microbiology on the night before the assignment is due). I will accept
articles published online as long as they are written for a general audi
ence (not scientific papers) and are from a
publication, not a webpage. (i.e. an article about food poisoning from the New York Times that you found online is
OK, a webpage on food poisoning is not).

Each article summary/ analysis is worth 10pts.


Seminar
s:

Throughout the quarter we will have several seminars from the book The Medical Detectives. You will be
given questions to answer BEFORE you come to class on seminar day, and will get additional questions that will be
discussed in groups during class tim
e. If you do not have your seminar questions answered before class, you will not
be able to participate in the seminar, and will not be given any points for the seminar (each seminar is generally worth
10pts).


Final grades will be calculated as a percenta
ge of the total points earned from quizzes, exams
, seminars
, etc. Late
assignments will be docked 10% for each day late. Make
-
up labs

and lab exams

are difficult and sometimes
impossible to do. Other quizzes and exams can be made up only with the advanc
e permission of the instructor.

Plagiarism and Cheating:

Any time you use someone else’s work as your own without acknowledging wher
e it came from, you are guilty of
plagiarism. This includes copying from the textbook or the internet or another student when you are told to do your
own work or put something in your own words. All work quoted from someone else must be cited.
It is never

appropriate to turn in a paper that is identical to that of another student.
Anyone guilty of plagiarism will receive a
zero on the assignment and may receive an F as their grade in the entire course
.



VI. A.DA. Statement


If you need course adaptations

or accommodations because of a disability, if you have emergency medical
information to share with me, or if you need special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated, please
make an appointment with me as soon as possible.


Repeat Policy
:

Courses in the biology department may be attempted
a maximum

of two times. A grade of C
-
, D, F, V, or W c
ounts as an
attempt.
