Microbiology can be defined as the biology of microscopic organisms, or life too small to be seen with the naked eye. Microbiology covers several disciplines, including virology (study of viruses), bacteriology (study of bacteria), mycology (study of fungi), and parasitology (study of parasites). Each of these disciplines may include but is not limited to studies of infectious disease-causing microorganisms.
For example, specialties within microbiology may include microbial physiology (i.e., microbial growth, metabolism, structure), microbial genetics and evolution, environmental microbiology (i.e., microbial ecology), industrial microbiology (i.e., industrial fermentation, wastewater treatment), and food microbiology (i.e., use of microbes for food production, fermentation).
The need for qualified microbiologists continues to grow, both for basic research and practical applications. Many microbes have yet to be discovered. In addition, microbiologists are still studying how the known microbes function. As a result, the field of microbiology has virtually unlimited potential. Microbiologists are needed across many industries, including in academic, technology, industrial and environmental organizations.
Several career paths exist for individuals interested in studying microbes, or using microbiology techniques in their daily job activities. Much depends upon the chosen career path, including the degree and training required, the positions available, salary and job outlook, and work environment. Those considering a career in a microbiology, or a related field, will benefit from investigating the options before committing to a specific degree program.
Microbiologists are scientists who study microbes, organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye. They also study how microbes interact with their environment. This includes examining how they cause disease and affect the health of plants, humans and other animals. Immunology — the study of how human health is...
