This course emphasizes the ecology and species diversity of terrestrial and aquatic microorganisms using a metabolism-based approach, and incorporates the significance of those topics within the context of environmental applications. The laboratory portion of the course will stress method development, and will involve isolation and characterization of microorganisms from natural and engineered systems, environmentally-relevant aspects of metabolism, and the role of microorganisms in biogeochemical cycling.
