Unit 10: Applied Microbiology
In this last unit, we will learn about other major sub-fields of microbiology, including environmental microbiology, biotechnology, and microbial food preparation. We briefly touched upon these topics in our introduction, but we will now go through them in more detail. We will also consider some of the many applications of microbiology. Note that bacteria and fungi (yeast) are used to make vitamins, antibiotics, and beer and to clean up petroleum.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 7 hours.
