Enkeltfag Engelsk 5 ECTS

Videregående Miljøteknisk Mikrobiologi

Overordnede kursusmål

This course will introduce you to the diversity of microbes, the microbial interactions and the microbial processes that are relevant for many environmental biotechnological applications. Using the engineered N cycle as the primary case study, you will learn how to detect and quantify microbes and develop an appreciation for core concepts in microbial ecology. Through laboratory exercises, and a combination of traditional and contemporary tools and techniques, you will learn how to evaluate the presence, abundance, identity, diversity, and activity of microorganisms in various environments and measure environmental process rates.

Læringsmål

  • Identify different techniques to evaluate activity, presence, abundance and diversity of microbes in environmental samples
  • Determine and quantify targeted microbes with modern molecular and microscopic methods
