Microbiology

Course Concept:

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms (an organism which can be only seen by microscope), which are unicellular or cell-cluster microscopic organisms. Microbiology is a broad term which includes many branches like Bacteriology, Virology, Mycology, Parasitology and others. A person who specializes in the area of Microbiology is called as Microbiologist. Although much progress has been made in this field, according to conservative estimates not more than 1% is known about the microbes in any given environment. Thus, despite the fact that over three hundred years have passed since the discovery of microbes, the field of microbiology is not only in its infancy but also with a huge potential of growth. It is certainly one of the fastest growing fields in terms of career-growth.

Medical microbiologists identify the agent causing an infectious disease and try and devise methods to eliminate the agent or the virus. Public health microbiology is clearly related to medical microbiology. Public health micro-biologist tries to control the spread of communicable diseases. They often monitor community food establishments and water supplies in an attempt to keep them safe and free from infectious disease agents.

The field of microbial ecology is closely related to agricultural microbiology. Microbial ecologists study the relationship between micro-organisms and their habitats. They are concerned with the contribution of microorganisms to the carbon, nitrogen and sulphur cycles in soil and in fresh water. The study of pollution effects on micro-organisms also is important because of the impact these micro-organisms have on the environment. Microbial ecologists are employing micro-organisms in bioremediation to reduce pollution effects.

Again one can opt for any specialisation like Medical microbiology, Food Microbiology, Industrial Microbiology, Bioinformatics, Microbial-Technology, Clinical Research, Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Forensic Science, Hospital Management or even Hotel Administration.

Career Prospects:

As India is now making a shift from process patent to product patent, large pharmaceutical companies are investing in R&D. As a result, there is an employment opportunity in the area of formulation research, analytical development and clinical research and in new drug discovery. Self employment is also a very good option for microbiologists to start their professional career. They can set up microbiological laboratories of their own and can help in diagnosing the disease and researchers to direct their own research.

There are large, private research institutes that conduct Microbiological/epidemiological studies for Government agencies where there is a sudden outbreak of any epidemic disease.
