Course Outline for
BIOL2266 — Diagnostic Microbiology
5 (4/1/0)
Meets MnTC Goal Area 3. This course is the study of microorganisms of
medical importance in relationship to disease and diagnosis. This course
also emphasizes identification of bacteria in patient specimens, specimen
collection and antimicrobial susceptibility testing, as well as introducing
virology, mycology, parasitology and immunology. The laboratory covers
basic techniques of identification of normal flora, pathogenic bacteria,
fungi and parasites, including morphology, classification and cultivation of
bacteria. Each student will be required to identify bacterial unknowns in
broth. The course has four hours of lecture and one two-hour laboratory
per week.
