Microbiology

Microorganisms were the first living things on Earth, and they remain the most abundant and the most diverse of all organisms. Microorganisms cause diseases of plants, animals and humans, and play critical roles in biogeochemical cycles and bioremediation, and are also important in the food and biotechnology industries.

Microbiologists in the Department of Biological Sciences use model microorganisms to study bacterial motility and protein localization, bacterial symbiosis and pathogenesis, bacterial respiration, nitrogen fixation, and yeast genetics.
