HOW TO AVOID MICROBIAL SPOILAGE OF FOOD?

All life on earth is based on microbes. Microbial processes run global nutrient cycles. Present microbiological knowledge is applied in medicine, in the industry and in food production. With techniques based on microbiology and microbial biotechnology, we may even apply methods to save the environment. If you want to learn more about microbes and the biotechnological applications as well as what research techniques are used to study viruses, bacteria and other microbes, the Master's Programme of Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology might be something for you.
