Sonstige Informationen (*)Contents of lectures:

1. Introduction to Microbiology - importance of microorganisms - evolution of the cell (J. Szostak theory) - main microbial habitats

2. History of Microbiology - important microbiologists and discoveries

3. Seeing the small world - basic and advanced microscopical techniques, sequencing techniques

4. Cell structure - difference in prokayrotic and eukaryotic cell - inner cell structures - cytoplasmic membrane, cell wall, transport systems, DNA, basic of genetics - cytoskeleton (prokaryotic vs eukaryotic) - mitochondria, chloroplast (endo-symbiotic theory)

5. Metabolism - basic principles of metabolism and cell energetics - advanced metabolism (anaerobic respiration, methanogenesis, syntrophy, chemolithotrophy)

6. Microbial diversity - ecologically important groups of bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes - this part might be good to merge with metabolism? - advanced lecture on microbial habitats (aquatic, terestrial, higher organisms)

7. Microorganisms and their resistance to chemical agens (mainly antibiotics) - type of resistance - type of antibiotics and their targets in microbial cell (ribosome, cell wall, etc.) - fungal antibiotics

8. Biotechnology - bioremediation, biodegradation

Contents of laboratories: Practical training of microscopical techniques, gram staining, streak-plate method, counting live and total bacteria, growth curve, antibiotic test.
