MICR 401 - Microbial Diversity and Evolution

(3 units)
Commonalities of diverse microbes and their evolutionary interrelationships. Sequence-based detection of uncultured microbes, homology-based prediction of their metabolic and physiological potential, and application of phylogenetic analysis to classify them.

Prerequisite(s): MICR 276 ; MICR 276L .

Grading Basis: Graded
Units of Lecture: 3
Offered: Every Spring

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
