Micro-organisms surround us. Scientists research microscopic life systems to better understand and create solutions for diseases, the environment, food supplies, industry and agriculture. Therefore, microbiological techniques and studies have become commonplace in a wide variety of research and applied biological laboratories. From cloning and amplification of DNA sequences to producing proteins for biochemical studies, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms are fundamental in biology labs.
Infectious diseases from microorganisms and parasites, such as Malaria, account for millions of deaths worldwide. For this reason, microbiologists employ media and cultures to conduct experiments using titer, staining, fermentation, and incubation techniques, with the goal of identifying the sources of these infections and the pathways they use to invade host organisms. With this information, treatments can be developed to combat the pathogens.
