Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with both the basic knowledge of microbiology and the essential elements to understand the impact of microorganisms in food quality.
In particular, we will examine the characteristics of microbial agents and their importance as agents of disease; we will also analyze the main food categories highlighting the microorganisms "virtuous" and those pathogens, emphasizing, in this case, the potential risks associated with the consumption of contaminated food.
The laboratory will enable students to acquire the skills necessary to implement the main microbiological analysis of food.

Program

Introduction: importance of microbiology in food

Principles of microbiology:

-notions of microbial taxonomy

-cultivation of microorganisms

Water
