Microorganisms play a central role in a variety of food, agricultural, and environmental processes. This course presents a comprehensive survey of the roles that microorganisms play in industrial/biotechnological processes as well as their importance in the safety and production of foods. A focus on the impact of genomics and the emerging understanding of the microbiome provides an underlying foundation for the course. A 2-credit core section on food microbiology is complemented by a 1-credit section on industrial/biotechnological applications.
