Environmental Microbiology refers to the ecology of microorganisms, their interrelationship and relationship with their environment are focused. This [course_title] is designed for you to gain the knowledge of the diverse role of microorganisms in natural and artificial environments by which you will be able to solve the problems related with cellular architecture, energetics, growth, evolution and gene flow, biogeochemical cycling and so on.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer need to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
