Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Target competences lie in gaining new knowledge and its application in problem solving, observation, experiments and communication: - to characterize the attributes of prions, viruses and bacteria, to understand phylogenetic relations of the different groups, to learn about and to term characteristic organisms of the individual taxons and to understand the significance of pathogenic as well as non-pathogenic species - to apply the gained knowledge in dealing with practical tasks in seminars, to consider the consequences of a phenomenon from the environmental, sanitary as well as economic points of view; to build a positive attitude to nature - to be able to work independently on the set tasks, to observe and objectively record the experiment results, to adhere to safe (aseptic) work principles when working with biological material and technical equipment - to be able to work with expert/academic texts, to be familiar with the expert terminology, to be able to synthetize the obtained experimental data and to justify own approach in dealing with a biological problem

Summary

The course clarifies the role of microorganisms in the live natural system. Students gain information on the morphology and physiology of acellular organisms and basic groups of microorganisms, their status in the nature as well as on the mutual relations of microbial populations, including an overview of basic pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganism strains. Some lectures will be dedicated to practical applications of microorganisms in water technologies and their role as indicators of water quality in accordance with valid legislation.
