Lecture: Physiology and diversity of prokaryotes
The students know how to
- cultivate bacteria and generate pure cultures
- determine the live count
- prepare and use washed cell suspensions for experiments
- measure bacterial activity (respiration, proton translocation, transport processes) and growth
- use and understand the functioning electrodes (pH, O2) and photometers
- use a microscope and take digital microphotographs
- quantitatively rely growth, energy metabolism and fundamental physiological processes
- understand the action of inhibitors
- present and discuss scientific results
- write a scientific protocol
“Physiology of bacteria”: The course starts with an introductory seminar every morning. One enrichment and isolation experiment will be performed over 10 days. Four physiological experiments are done over two day’s round robin. The following processes are analyzed: Growth under oxic and anoxic conditions, respiration with complex and monomer substrates, respiration-driven proton translocation, transport of ions.
