Comments about BSc Microbiology - At the institution - Guildford - Surrey

  • Objectives
    Microbiology is a dynamic and fascinating subject, benefiting from gene chip technology and other 'post-genomic£ advances. In this programme you will explore the way in which viruses and bacteria cause disease, and how we can treat these diseases or prevent them through vaccine development. You will learn how the latest developments in microbial genetics are increasing our understanding of microorganisms, giving you entry into a very fast- moving and exciting field of science. You will learn how microorganisms are used as 'cell factories£ to make gene therapy agents, replace missing components in defective cells and synthesise a variety of therapeutic drugs.
