Undergraduate introductory microbiology courses  

 
 


Brief Overview:

A universal introductory lab in Microbiology involves identification of unknown microbes by students. Here, we enhance this activity by incorporating bioinformatics and phylogenetic analysis.The advantages are that it adds an evolutionary component to an otherwise descriptive and physiological exercise and students can compare a qualitative taxonomy technique with a more phylogenetic technique.
