Microbiology is the branch of science that studies “LIFE” taking on example of microorganism such as bacteria, protozoa, algae, fungi, viruses etc. these studies integrate cytology, physiology, genetics, molecular biology, evolution, taxonomy and systematic with a focus on micro-organism. The relevance and applications of these microorganisms to the surrounding environment influencing human life and mother nature become a part of this branch. Since inception of this branch of science, microbiology has remained a field of activity research and ever expansion in all possible directions; broadly categories as pure and applied science. Different branch of pure microbiology based on taxonomy are bacteriology, Mycology, Protozoology and Parasitology, Phycology and Virology with considerable overlap between these specific branches over each other and also with other disciplines of life science, life biochemistry, Botany, Zoology, Cell biology, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Bioinformatics etc. Area in the applied Microbial science can be identified as Medical, Pharmaceutical, Industrial, Air, Water, Food and Dairy, Agriculture, Veterinary, Environmental and Technological Aspects to these Area.
Knowledge of different aspects of microbiology has become crucial and indispensable to everyone in the society. Study of Microbes has become an Integral part of education and human progress. Microbiological tools have been extensively used to study different life process and cutting-edge technologists in the workforce education, Industry and research. Career Opportunity for the graduate’s students are available in manufacturing industry and research institutions at technical level.
