Edition 1
Edited by Ipek Kurtboke

Publication Date: 14 Apr 2022
Importance of Microbiology Teaching and Microbial Resource Management for Sustainable Futures brings experts together to highlight the importance of microbiology-discipline-based teaching with its unique skills-based approaches. The book discusses how microscope microbiology has received significant attention since microorganisms played a significant role in the advancement, as well as destruction of, mankind during incidences such as the black death. With the discovery of penicillin from a fungal culture, the beneficial role of microorganisms has been a major catalyst in the progress of biological sciences.

Interestingly, there are fundamental aspects of microbiology that did not change since revelations of their identity dating back to the Pasteur era. This book details the progress made and milestones that have been set in the science.

Key Features

  • Emphasizes traditional and discipline-based teaching with a focus on microbiology
  • Combines pedagogy and the challenges faced in the post-genomic era
  • Provides examples from various parts of the world, including from the Pasteur Institute
