We'll cover all the basics of those captivating single celled organisms - bacteria, viruses, and protozoa.

When you think of viruses, do you picture the angular capsule perched atop the stalk with spindly legs? Well that's actually a virus that only infects bacteria, and human viruses look quite different!

Do you want to know exactly how long you can leave that pizza on the counter before it becomes overrun with E. coli? You'd better consider attending this class.
