Earth Scientists, Chemists and Engineers with little or no previous experience in microbiology who wish to learn more about fundamental microbiology and microbial ecology and how this relates to geochemical processes in natural and managed environments.
School of Engineering, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RU, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom

The course provides a basic introduction to microbiology and microorganisms, and explores their role in shaping the geochemistry of the Earth.

A survey of modern microorganisms and their environmentally and geochemically significant activities is an important foundation for the course. You'll also learn how metabolic processes catalysed by microorganisms are related to major elemental cycles, biogeochemical processes, and organic contaminant degradation.

You'll find out about the most up to date molecular methods used to study the diversity and activity of microorganisms in their natural habitats, along with their benefits and limitations.

The course will:

  • introduce microorganisms and methods for their study
  • introduce microbial processes of environmental and geochemical significance
  • provide detailed information on the most up to date methods for the study of microbial communities
  • introduce the analysis of microbial datasets
