BIO 236 - Microbial Pathogenesis


Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The mechanisms of pathogenesis by which cellular microbes invade animal and plant hosts will be explored principally through the analysis of primary literature. Emphasis will be on human bacterial pathogens, although important protist and fungal pathogens will be discussed. Topics include, but are not limited to, pathogen colonization, immune evasion, toxin production and action, biofilms and quorum sensing, and the role of normal microflora in disease prevention.
