MBIO-3604 Environmental Microbiology - Theory
This course studies the interactions between microorganisms and their environment (water, soil, air, plants) as well as the role of these interactions toward biotechnological bioprospection. It has been divided into four modules: One based on diversity and biotechnology. The second and third modules are based on the role of microorganisms in the cycles of the elements and their application in the biodegradation and biotransformation of xenobiotic and recalcitrant compounds. Finally, the fourth module is focused on the usefulness of microorganisms as biofertilizers and biological control agents.
