COURSE OUTCOMES:
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
Compare and contrast the various kinds of pathogenic microorganisms including bacteria,
viruses, protozoans, fungi, helminths and insects.
Describe how microbes are named and classified and demonstrate the importance of these
concepts to laboratory identification and microbial control.
Describe and explain the major features of microbial structure, morphology, metabolism,
growth and genetics and relate these to disease, identification, treatment and control.
Compare and contrast the major features of selected microbial diseases including: identification
of the etiologic agent, life cycle, transmission, symptoms, treatment and prevention and relate
these features to the progression and control of disease.
Evaluate possible pathogens based on epidemiological evidence in case study form.
Demonstrate and apply the major principles, techniques and agents (chemical and physical) of
microbial control.
Perform and use laboratory techniques designed to isolate, grow, maintain and identify
microbes under controlled situations including: microscopy, aseptic technique, culture
techniques and microbial control.
Define and apply basic principles related to infection and disease, including: modes of invasion
and establishment, factors affecting pathogenicity and development of disease, and reactions to
invasion and tissue damage.
Describe the development of immunity and the nature of vaccines and immunization.
Predict the presence of microbial populations, formulate solutions to control these populations
and educate the public on basic issues in microbiology and immunology.
PREREQUISITES:
Recommended: BI102, CH110, 104, 105, 106. It is expected that you have a basic understanding of
chemical principles before you enter this class.

ACCESSING YOUR GRADE THROUGHOUT THE TERM:
When you would like to see your grade email me and ask to see your grade report. I will reply within 1
business day with your current scores. I can only communicate grade information over MyChemeketa
email.
NOTE: There are no make-up labs. If you miss more than 2 labs you will NOT receive credit for the
course. No make-up quizzes or exams will be given, except under prearranged or special circumstances.
PUNCTUALITY and LATE ASSIGNMENTS:
Punctuality is crucial. Late assignments are generally not accepted with the exception of certain
circumstances (e.g., illness, emergency) or a late pass. You will be given one late pass per term, you
cannot use another person’s pass. Assignments are due at the beginning of the specified class session
(unless otherwise noted) and are considered late thereafter.
If you are late for an exam or quiz, you will have the remainder of the time given to the class for
completion. For example, if you are 10 minutes late to a 60 minute exam, you will have the remaining 50
minutes to complete the exam. Tardiness to class will not only affect your personal learning but also the
learning of group members. Given an acceptable excuse for their tardiness (e.g., emergency), late
individuals may be provided an alternate assignment. Please note that work/traffic/parking/etc. are not
acceptable excuses for tardiness.
COURSE MATERIALS AND ASSIGNMENTS:
Lecture Material--Lecture material will be presented in the form of PowerPoint lecture notes and class
activities. You will find the Power Point lecture notes on the course web page. I convert the files into a
.pdf file which is easily read by the free program Adobe Acrobat.
Study Guides--The Study Guides are the learning objectives for the week. If you are comfortable with
the information in the study guide questions, you will be on your way to a good grade on the exams
since these are the concepts I will assess you on. They are posted on the course website.
Laboratory Notebook--A laboratory notebook will serve as your legal record of events that occurred in
the microbiology lab. It will be a place to outline your experiments, record data and present your
conclusions about your experiments. Laboratory Notebooks will be graded for their completeness,
accuracy and neatness.
Mystery Microbe Project--The unknown bacteria identification project is a way for you to become a
microbe detective. Think of yourself as a lab technician who receives a patient sample and you must
identify the specimen accurately to offer the patient the best treatment plan. You will perform
experiments, collect data, analyze data and draw conclusions in order to identify your unknown
bacterial species. You will receive a numbered tube the second week in lab and then perform
experiments with your unknown each week. At the end of the quarter you should be able to correctly
identify your unknown bacterial genus and species.
Final Class Project--This will be a PowerPoint project in which you apply course concepts to your
personal choice of an area of microbiology. Guidelines for the project are on the course homepage and
we will discuss the guidelines as the quarter progresses.
Exams-- Exams will take place at the beginning of class. They will be in the form of short answer,
multiple choice, short essay, long essay and case study questions.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
ACADEMIC HONESTY STATEMENT:
http://www.chemeketa.edu/earncertdegree/advising/studyskills/writing/resources/academichonesty/
Learning is built on the fundamental qualities of honesty, fairness, respect and trust. At Chemeketa
Community College, academic integrity is a shared endeavor characterized by truth, personal
responsibility and high academic standards. Any violation of academic integrity devalues the individual
and the community as a whole. Violations of academic honesty include but are not limited to the
following: plagiarism, cheating, collusion, fabrication / falsification /alteration, unauthorized
submissions, and sabotage / tampering.
Definition of Plagiarism:
Plagiarism is defined as representing the words, ideas, or work of another as one’s own in any academic
exercise. Plagiarism consists of taking the words or substance of another work and either copying or
paraphrasing without giving credit to the source. Plagiarism is applicable to written, oral, and artistic
work. The following examples are only some of the many forms plagiarism may take:
 Word-for-word copying of work written by someone else.
 Failure to give proper credit for ideas, statements of facts, or conclusions derived by another.
 Failure to use quotation marks when quoting directly from another, whether a paragraph,
sentence, or phrase.
 Close and extended paraphrasing of another work without acknowledging the source.
Definition of Cheating:
Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of
dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means. The following are only some of the many forms cheating may
take:
 Copying another’s work on a test, paper, or project.
 Using unauthorized materials in an exam or collaborating on work to be turned in for credit
where the instructor disallows such collaboration.
 Taking an exam for another student, purposely allowing another student to copy during a test,
or providing coursework for another student to turn in as his or her own effort.
 Fabricating, falsifying or misrepresenting data or results from experiments, interviews or
surveys.
 Submitting the same work in more than one class for credit without permission from the
instructor.
By taking this course, you agree to adhere to the Academic Honesty Guidelines. Infractions, such as
cheating or plagiarism, WILL NOT BE TOLERATED and will be dealt with according to the policies of CCC.
Any such infractions will constitute a violation of the college policy and will result in an appropriate
consequence (e.g., zero on the assignment, an F for the course, etc.) at the discretion of the instructor
and college officials.
