Department Of Microbiology


Microbiology is the discipline of biology that studies the fundamental nature and utility of unicellular organisms, both prokaryotic and eukaryotic, that are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Microorganisms are key agents in the cycling of all the major elements of life.  They have been instrumental in introducing new concepts into molecular evolution and genomics; and they have great potential for exploitation in industry, agriculture, food production and environmental restoration.  The fundamentals constitute the broad outline of the current field termed Microbiology. This motivates thousands of students in their scholarly pursuits
