- Course objectives
- Owing to learned knowledge the course holder is able to use obtained information in bacterial taxonomy and independently interpret acquired data for both typing of bacterial isolates and for identification of unknown samples of prokaryotic microorganisms.
- Learning outcomes
- At the end of this course, students should be able to identify prokaryotes (domains Archaea and Bacteria) based on their phenothypic properties as well as a phylogenetic position of analysed isolates.
- Bacterial taxonomy summarises a phylogenetic position of prokaryotic microorganisms (domains Archaea and Bacteria) and defines a concept of systematics (one lecture). Members of domain Archaea are mentioned only in basic features of families and genera (one lecture). The main attention is aimed to representatives of domain Bacteria which are divided in this course into several parts. The first part contains taxonomy of different classes of phylum Proteobacteria (fifth lecture). The second part includes other phyla of Gram negative cocci and rods - aerobic, facultative anaerobic and obligate anaerobic; regular or irregular (three lectures). The last part of lecture is aimed to Gram positive bacteria (phylum Actinobacteria and Firmicutes) - morphologically different prokaryotae, such as mycobacteria, nocardioform or mycelium forming bacteria and sporeforming bacteria (four lectures). At the end of this course, students should be able to apply a obtained phenotype and phylogenetic data for classification of microorganisms or for typing of microorganisms. They could understand a similarity or relationships among species and would be able to explain to intra- or inter-species relationships.
