What Is Microbiology

Microbiology is the most relevant, dynamic and exciting disciplines in the biological and molecular sciences that deals with microscopically small living organisms. Microbiology has become an umbrella term that cover up many field of studies for instance medical, molecular, veterinary, industrial, environmental, parasitology, mycology, bacteriology, virology and numerous other. An understanding of microbiology concerning with the environment has fashioned other sub disciplines including microbial ecology, microbial physiology, microbial genetics and molecular biology. Microbiology has benefited enormously in improving health care, medical and allied health sciences for the welfare of mankind.
