Course detail

Mikrobiology in Food Industry

FCH-DCO_PMAcad. year: 2020/2021

Students will be familiarized with taxonomy of microorganisms, morphology and physiology of microbial cells, metabolic strategies of industrially relevant microorganisms, regulation of metabolism of industrial microorganisms, microbial kinetics, microbial stress response, adaptation strategies of microorganisms, physiology and metabolism of extremophiles, purpose oriented behavior of microorganisms (quorum sensing, biofilm formation, mutagenesis) and also advanced techniques for analysis of microbial cells (such as single cell analysis).

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will gain advanced knowledge in applied industrial microbiology and food biotechnology.
