Introduction to the Microbial World
It's time to learn about microorganisms! These are all the tiny little critters in the water, and the air, and in the ground, and inside you. We didn't even know they were there until a few hundred years ago, but once we started to learn about them, we started to figure out a lot of things about disease. Namely, that lots of diseases are caused by certain varieties of microorganisms, which we call pathogens. In this series we will set up some basic concepts in microbiology, and then we will go through a long list of pathogens, one by one, to learn about what diseases they cause, how they do it, and the methods we've developed to combat them!

What does a microbiologist do? | University of Tasmania
Biomedical Science graduate Lauren Upston is passionate about her job working in microbiology as a Medical Scientist.
In the hospital we are working alongside everyone else to bring about a result for the patient - that’s really satisfying. Exciting things happen all the time. I’m still learning things every day.
You can study a Bachelor of Medical Research at the University of Tasmania to follow in Lauren's footsteps:

What is Studied in Microbiology
Microorganisms, cell types, and characteristics
Microbiologist Salary (2020) – Microbiologist Jobs
Microbiologists study microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and some types of parasites. They try to understand how these organisms live, grow, and interact with their environments.
Microbiologists typically do the following:
• Plan and conduct complex research projects, such as improving sterilization procedures or developing new drugs to combat infectious diseases
• Perform laboratory experiments that are used in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses
• Supervise the work of biological technicians and other workers and evaluate the accuracy of their results
• Isolate and maintain cultures of bacteria or other microorganisms for study
• Identify and classify microorganisms found in specimens collected from humans, plants, animals, or the environment
• Monitor the effect of microorganisms on plants, animals, other microorganisms, or the environment
• Review literature and the findings of other researchers and attend conferences
• Prepare technical reports, publish research papers, and make recommendations based on their research findings
• Present research findings to scientists, nonscientist executives, engineers, other colleagues, and the public
Many microbiologists work in research and development conducting basic research or applied research. The aim of basic research is to increase scientific knowledge. An example is growing strains of bacteria in various conditions to learn how they react to those conditions. Other microbiologists conduct applied research and develop new products to solve particular problems. For example, microbiologists may aid in the development of genetically engineered crops, better biofuels, or new vaccines.
Microbiologists use computers and a wide variety of sophisticated laboratory instruments to do their experiments. Electron microscopes are used to study bacteria, and advanced computer software is used to analyze the growth of microorganisms found in samples.
It is increasingly common for microbiologists to work on teams with technicians and scientists in other fields, because many scientific research projects involve multiple disciplines. Microbiologists may work with medical scientists or molecular biologists while researching new drugs, or they may work in medical diagnostic laboratories alongside physicians and nurses to help prevent, treat, and cure diseases.
The following are examples of types of microbiologists:
Bacteriologists study the growth, development, and other properties of bacteria, including the positive and negative effects that bacteria have on plants, animals, and humans.
Clinical microbiologists perform a wide range of clinical laboratory tests on specimens collected from plants, humans, and animals to aid in detection of disease. Clinical and medical microbiologists whose work involves directly researching human health may be classified as medical scientists.
Environmental microbiologists study how microorganisms interact with the environment and each other. They may study the use of microbes to clean up areas contaminated by heavy metals or study how microbes could aid crop growth.
Industrial microbiologists study and solve problems related to industrial production processes. They may examine microbial growth found in the pipes of a chemical factory, monitor the impact industrial waste has on the local ecosystem, or oversee the microbial activities used in cheese production to ensure quality.
Mycologists study the properties of fungi such as yeast and mold. They also study the ways fungi can be used to benefit society (for example, in food or the environment) and the risks fungi may pose.
Parasitologists study the life cycle of parasites, the parasite-host relationship, and how parasites adapt to different environments. They may investigate the outbreak and control of parasitic diseases such as malaria.
Public health microbiologists examine specimens to track, control, and prevent communicable diseases and other health hazards. They typically provide laboratory services for local health departments and community health programs.
Virologists study the structure, development, and other properties of viruses and any effects viruses have on infected organisms.
Many people with a microbiology background become high school teachers or postsecondary teachers.
In this video, Stephen Hack talks about Microbiologist statistics nationally and across the United States. “How much does a Microbiologist make?” and “How many jobs are there for Microbiologists” are important questions for people trying to choose between different fields. Microbiologists are well paid professionals that play a vital role in our society.

Growth Media and Pouring Plates - Microbiology techniques
One of the first things you learn in microbiology is how to make media, and when you think about it, it makes sense. Microbes are tiny and only have what we give them. So if we don't provide what they need, they simply won't grow. Growing microbes can be very rewards wether you're making your own beer, or you're doing genetic engineering. In this video we explore the 5 different kinds of media and what goes into them. While the focus is on bacterial growth media, we also touch on what's needed to grow plant and animal cells. We'll be using the techniques in this video in the future when we start genetically engineering microbes to do everything from glow to change colors on cue.
Once we have our plates, we'll want to streak them with bacteria. To learn how head over to the scihouse channel to learn all about the process:
