So, don't let concerns about living expenses or the location of an organization posted on this website prevent you from checking out an exciting and challenging Co-op or Internship position!! Microbiology is the study of organisms too small to be clearly seen by the unaided eye (i.e., microorganisms); these include viruses, bacteria, archaea, protozoa, algae, and fungi Some microbes (e.g., algae and fungi) are large enough to be visible, but are still included in the field of microbiology; it has been suggested that microbiology be defined not only by the size of the organisms studied but by techniques employed to study them (isolation, sterilization, culture in artificial media) Francesco Redi (1626-1697) challenged this concept by showing that maggots on decaying meat came from fly eggs deposited on the meat, and not from the meat itself John Needham (1713-1781) showed that mutton broth boiled in flasks and then sealed could still develop microorganisms, which supported the theory of spontaneous generation Lazzaro Spallanzani (1729-1799) showed that flasks sealed and then boiled had no growth of microorganisms, and he proposed that air carried germs to the culture medium; he also commented that external air might be needed to support the growth of animals already in the medium; the latter concept was appealing to supporters of spontaneous generation Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) trapped airborne organisms in cotton; he also heated the necks of flasks, drawing them out into long curves, sterilized the media, and left the flasks open to the air; no growth was observed because dust particles carrying organisms did not reach the medium, instead they were trapped in the neck of the flask; if the necks were broken, dust would settle and the organisms would grow; in this way Pasteur disproved the theory of spontaneous generation John Tyndall (1820-1893) demonstrated that dust did carry microbes and that if dust was absent, the broth remained sterile-even if it was directly exposed to air; Tyndall also provided evidence for the existence of heat-resistant forms of bacteria Joseph Lister (1872-1912) developed a system of surgery designed to prevent microorganisms from entering wounds; his patients had fewer postoperative infections, thereby providing indirect evidence that microorganisms were the causal agents of human disease; his published findings (1867) transformed the practice of surgery Robert Koch (1843-1910), using criteria developed by his teacher, Jacob Henle (1809-1895), established the relationship between Bacillus anthracis and anthrax; his criteria became known as Koch's Postulates and are still used to establish the link between a particular microorganism and a particular disease: Koch and his associates developed techniques, reagents, and other materials for culturing bacterial pathogens on solid growth media; these enable microbiologists to isolate microbes in pure culture Charles Chamberland (1851-1908) constructed a bacterial filter that removed bacteria and larger microbes from specimens; this led to the discovery of viruses as disease-causing agents Louis Pasteur developed other vaccines including those for chicken cholera, anthrax, and rabies Emil von Behring (1854-1917) and Shibasaburo Kitasato (1852-1931) induced the formation of diphtheria toxin antitoxins in rabbits; the antitoxins were effectively used to treat humans and provided evidence for humoral immunity Elie Metchnikoff (1845-1916) demonstrated the existence of phagocytic cells in the blood, thus demonstrating cell-mediated immunity Louis Pasteur demonstrated that alcoholic fermentations were the result of microbial activity, that some organisms could decrease alcohol yield and sour the product, and that some fermentations were aerobic and some anaerobic; he also developed the process of pasteurization to preserve wine during storage Sergei Winogradsky (1856-1953) worked with soil bacteria and discovered that they could oxidize iron, sulfur, and ammonia to obtain energy; he also studied anaerobic nitrogen fixation and cellulose decomposition Martinus Beijerinck (1851-1931) isolated aerobic nitrogen-fixing bacteria, a root-nodule bacterium capable of fixing nitrogen, and sulfate reducing bacteria Eucaryotes are morphologically complex and have a true, membrane-enclosed nucleus In a commonly used classification scheme, organisms are divided into five kingdoms: the Monera or Procaryotae, Protista, Fungi, Animalia, and Plantae; microbiologists are concerned primarily with members of the first three kingdoms and also with viruses, which are not classified with living organisms Recently a classification scheme consisting of three domains (Bacteria, Archaea, and Eucarya) has become widely accepted; this scheme is followed in this textbook Microorganisms were the first living organisms on the planet, live everywhere life is possible, are more numerous than any other kind of organism, and probably constitute the largest component of the earth's biomass The entire ecosystem depends on the activities of microorganisms, and microorganisms influence human society in countless ways Microbiology has an impact on many fields including medicine, agriculture, food science, ecology, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology Microbiologists may be interested in specific types of organisms: Microbiologists may be interested in various characteristics or activities of microorganisms: Microbiologists may have a more applied focus:
