Both fundamental concepts and their applications are presented in this text in order to provide a foundation in microbiology that will enable the students to venture into more advanced and applied fields. The presentation is also designed to aid the student in integrating the concepts into a basic framework of biological principles. Second, this text is not an outline or a review, in that it does not require previous knowledge of microbiology to be understood. Microbiology is a survey of the comparative biology of micro-organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and protozoa. The manuscript has been class tested and many students` suggestions have also been incorporated.
