Microbiology and It’s Importance

We are living in an unprecedented period with a virus that is evolving at a breakneck pace, and no vaccination will be able to completely remove the risk of catching the virus. Covid19 is a member of the SARS/MERS family, which has been around for a long time. While SARS has a greater death rate than Covid, the new strains appear to be lethal. What we’re talking about in this post is a topic of study that’s commonly found in bachelor’s degree programs, as well as in Medicine, Pharmacy, and a variety of other university programs.


I can’t emphasize enough how important this program is, and let me tell you a story about it. When I was at university, I assisted some of my friends in the medical program by reading the book in English and explaining it to them in Arabic. This continued for the four years that I completed my bachelor’s degree, and I can tell you that I learned a lot about science, biology, and microbiology, and I can tell if someone knows their stuff or not when they speak about these subjects. And those four years had impacted my life and given me a new perspective because studying science is not the same as studying economics (of course both are good subjects to study, but the outlook of each is different, you appreciate your life when you study science subject, as you are under the microscope and being looked after).


A brief explanation:

The study of all living creatures that are too tiny to be seen with the naked eye is known as microbiology. Microbes are bacteria, archaea, viruses, fungus, prions, protozoa, and algae, which are all classified as bacteria. Nutrient cycling, biodegradation/biodeterioration, climate change, food spoilage, disease etiology and management, and biotechnology all rely on these bacteria. Microbes may be used in a variety of ways, including the production of life-saving pharmaceuticals, the production of biofuels, the cleanup of pollution, and the production/processing of food and drink.


Another way to put it:

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms, sometimes known as microbes, which are a varied collection of microscopic basic living forms that include bacteria, archaea, algae, fungus, protozoa, and viruses. Microbiology is concerned with the structure, function, and categorization of such organisms, as well as methods of exploitation and control of their activities. Almost many colleges categorize this curriculum as a bachelor of science, biomedical science, or medicine program. You will investigate all microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, algae, and many more.


The advantages of this curriculum are that you can go into medicine or stay in the area till you get your Ph.D., and you can find a solution for many ailments that we see on a daily basis. I’d want to emphasize an essential point here: the lives of our loved ones are critical to our happiness, and we don’t all need to pursue careers in banking, finance, or writing; some of us need to pursue careers in sectors that are challenging but equally important.


Can you notice how few people had gone to learn this important subject? You must inquire as to why. However, you might not be able to respond to the question. Personally, I fault educators for not encouraging students to pursue disciplines that are critical to the survival of mankind and the decrease of the death rate. Many institutions offer this degree, so you have many options available to you in embarking on this journey.


Keep a positive attitude and you’ll be able to overcome the infection.
