Basics of Microbiology
The role of microbiology laboratory is very critical in identification of infectious agents as well as determination of suitable antimicrobial(s), With the expansion of the infection area and the types of infectious diseases, the role of microbiology laboratories increased and the role of microbiologists increased to a large extent, and the workers in the field aspire to reach a high degree of scientific and practical mastery of the field in order to reach the correct diagnosis and proper treatment of infectious diseases.
There are many different types of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. There are many ways to identify these microbes, as well as ways to identify the appropriate antimicrobial for each.
In this session, through 9 education hours, we will deal with these matters in summary to open the doors of this science, and the graduate of this course will be able to start in the fields of this science with ease.
