Microorganisms run the world. They are the foundation of every habitat on earth, from our bodies to the deep sea. The aim of this course is to train students to appreciate the fundamental microbial processes that are at the heart of many pressing medical and environmental issues today. The course is inherently interdisciplinary and will involve concepts in microbiology, genomics, ecology, evolution, and biogeochemistry. Students with any interest in medical, molecular, environmental, or evolutionary aspects of microbiology are welcome.
