Transcript of Branches of Microbiology

8. Industrial Microbiology
1. Pathology
Study of disease: the scientific study of the nature, origin, progress, and cause of disease.
Virology is the study of viruses – submicroscopic, parasitic particles of genetic material contained in a protein coat – and virus-like agents
7. Medical Microbiology
Medical microbiology is a branch of medicine concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases.
3. Mycology
Mycology is the branch of biology concerned with the study of fungi, including their genetic and biochemical properties, their taxonomy and their use to humans as a source for tinder, medicine, food, and entheogens, as well as their dangers, such as poisoning or infection.
5. Bacteriology
Bacteriology is the study of bacteria.

20. Pathology
Parasitology is the study of parasites,
their hosts, and the relationship
between them.
Immunology is a branch of biomedical
science that covers the study of all
aspects of the immune system in all
The study, utilization, and manipulation of those microorganisms capable of economically producing desirable substances or changes in substances, and the control of undesirable microorganisms.

Pharmaceutical microbiology is the part of industrial microbiology that is responsible for ensuring medications do not contain harmful levels of microbes.
Nano microbiology is the study of microbes using nano-technology.
The study of the evolution of microbes.
Microbial genetics studies the
genetics of very small (micro)
Cellular microbiology is a discipline that bridges microbiology and cell biology.
The branch of zoology
that studies protozoans.
Microbial physiology is defined as the study of how microbial cell structures, growth and metabolism function in living organisms.
Phycology is the scientific study of Algae
Nematology is the scientific discipline
concerned with the study of nematodes,
or roundworms.
Epidemiology is the study (or the science of the study) of the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations.
Genetic Microbiology is a subdiscipline of microbiology dealing especially with genetic components of life such as DNA and RNA.
-Pathology is set apart from other specialties because it has the ability to determine a symptom with the naked eye.

-Pathology addresses four components of disease: cause/etiology, mechanisms of development , structural alterations of cells, and the consequences of changes.

-Importance: Pathology testing services help in the early detection and prevention of disease, in timely clinical diagnosis, and to monitor response to treatment at all stages of a person’s life.
