Aims, contents and method of the course

This combination of seminar and excursions aims at providing an overview over selected areas of application of microbiology. Initially, the microbiological background of these applications will be acquired in seminars, in which each participant is asked to present an extended summary of selected literature that will subsequently be discussed. Further insights will then be gained during excursions, for example to a large brewery, the main wastewater treatment plant of Vienna, the diagnostic laboratory of the AKH, and modern molecular microbiology research labs.
