MICR 8400: Molecular Principles of Bacteriology and Virology
Credits: 2
This foundational module will cover fundamentals of the biology of bacteria and viruses. Bacteriology topics to be discussed include bacterial physiology, genetics, and gene regulation, and how these and other features impact drug discovery and pathogenesis. Virology topics to be discussed include virus structure and assembly, viral replication, viral genetic regulation, virus/immune interactions, and applications of viruses in 21st century.
