Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, those are being unicellular (single cell), multicellular (cell colony), or acellular (lacking cells). Microbiology encompasses numerous sub-disciplines including virology, mycology, parasitology, and bacteriology.

Many of the microbes may be regarded as man’s worst enemies. They cause a wide array of diseases in human. Viral, bacterial and fungal diseases of human beings have taken a heavy toll of human life. Before the discovery of microbes and before they were connected to diseases (germ theory of disease), the reasons for these diseases were not known and man continued to suffer. But the development of microbiology gave man an insight into the life of microbes. Study of the structure and life history of microbes and their physiology, metabolism genetics etc. will help us to control them so that diseases can be prevented and if it occurs can be cured.

 

In this section, we perform a wide range of investigation, diagnosis, and find the pattern of treatment of patients suffering from infectious diseases.

Examples:

  • Diseases of public health significance that is too rare or unusual to be identified by other laboratories.
  • Characterization of microorganisms at a level beyond what is normally required for patient management.
  • Agents that may be used in a bioterrorism event.
