Microbiology Department

School of Biological Sciences (SOBS)

INTRODUCTION

Microbiology is the study of life that is too small to see without a microscope.  Bacteria, archaea, viruses, and unicellular eukaryotes occupy every conceivable habitat; from arctic ice to hydrothermal vents, from gastrointestinal tracts to deep rock formations, from pristine lakes to polluted bogs.

Microbiology spans all of biology and provides the foundation for molecular biology and biotechnology.  FUTO's department of microbiology is dedicated to providing the quality education, through both teaching and research, necessary to meet the needs of this growing field.

Our graduates work in almost every industry-from food, agriculture and pollution control to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and health.  They also work in government agencies, labs and Environmental Protection Agency, water treatment facilities, and hospitals.
