The alluring field of Microbiology

The alluring field of Microbiology

Microbiology, an extremely vast term, covers copious sub-disciplines such as virology, parasitology, mycology and bacteriology. Being an application of medical microbiology, it is often brought in with medical principles of immunology. On the other hand, microbiology, virology, and immunology at the same time as basic sciences have significantly surpassed the medical variants and applied sciences.

Medical microbiology is referred to the study of the pathogenic microbes and the functions of microbes in human sickness. The sphere of microbiology includes the study of microbial pathogenesis and epidemiology.

Discussed below are the different branches of microbiology:

Pharmaceutical microbiology: it includes the study of microorganisms that are allied to the creation of enzymes, antibiotics, vitamins, vaccines, and additional pharmaceutical products.

Industrial microbiology: it refers to the development of microbes used several in industrial processes. It is inclusive of industrial fermentation and wastewater treatment, brewing and more.

Microbial biotechnology: The exploitation of microorganisms next to the genetic and molecular stage to produce valuable products.

Food microbiology: The study of microorganisms which causes food spoilage sickness.

Agricultural microbiology: it includes the study of agriculturally applicable microorganisms which can be classified into the following:

Plant microbiology and Plant pathology: The study of exchanges among microorganisms, plants and plant pathogens.

Soil microbiology: it includes the microorganisms that are mainly found in soil.

Veterinary microbiology: refers to study of the function of microbes in veterinary medicine or animal taxonomy.

Environmental microbiology: This study encompasses the purpose and diversity of microbes in their natural environments. This engages the characterization of main bacterial habitats like the rhizosphere and phyllosphere, open oceans or extreme environments (extremophiles) and soil and groundwater ecosystems.
