What is Microbiology and Immunology?
Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms such as algae, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses. Some micro-organisms cause infections but most live harmlessly and enhance our environment and our lives. Microbiology is also a core discipline for most areas of biotechnology.
Immunology is the study of the immune system. The immune system is involved in the defence of the body against infection and tumours. It also plays a role in unwanted responses like allergies and transplant rejection.
