Microbiology

Microbiology is a broad area of science that deals with study of micro-organisms that are difficult to spot with the naked eye. Microorganisms or microbes include bacteria, viruses, protozoa, microscopic yeasts, fungi and algae. A graduate of microbiology is usually called microbiologist. Microbiologists major roles are to ensure the food we intake is safe, to treat and prevent diseases caused by microorganisms, and to develop and track the roles of microorganisms in green technologies and climate change. Their work places range from labs and research facilities to companies and industries.  

Various Major under Microbiology

As microbiologists play a role in finding global answers, you can advance your career by choosing the specialization that helps you to evaluate and explore your career. Microbiology has been divided into 6 branches. Bacteriology – study of bacteria, Mycology – study of fungi, Phycology – study of algae, Parasitology – study of parasites, Immunology – study of immune system of the host body and the microorganism, and Virology – study of viruses. Other major branches of microbiology include Air microbiology, Biotechnology, Geo microbiology, Water microbiology, Medical microbiology, Sewage microbiology, Industry microbiology, Milk microbiology, Soil microbiology and Food microbiology.

Career opportunities for Microbiology

Many of the microbiologists work as biomedical scientists in laboratories, health organizations and hospitals which are involved in testing body tissue, fluids and blood samples to diagnose infections, treat and monitor treatment procedure and to track disease outbreak. Some work as clinical scientists to research and provide scientific advice, to develop vaccines and to improve existing treatment procedures. Microbiologists play major role in preventing and curing diseases, and identifying role of microbes in environment, soil and climate change.
