BIOL 472 Microbial Pathogenesis

Course focuses on the molecular basis of microbial pathogenesis. Through the application of molecular techniques to the study of the microbe-host interaction, scientists are gaining a fundamental understanding of the virulence mechanisms of microbial pathogens. Using primary literature the course will illustrate how the integration of the molecular basis of virulence mechanisms with the clinical aspects of disease has enhanced understanding of the pathogenesis of infectious diseases.
