Synopsis:

Microbiology: Organization and function in microbial cell. Procaryotic cell, binary fission. Phylogenetic system of bacteria and archea. Cyanobacteria. Microbial nutrition, microbial growth - life cycle of procaryotic cell, growth curve, kinetics of bacterial growth. Influence of environmental factors on microbial growth - temperature, pH, extreme environment. Antimicrobial, antibacterial agents - antibiotics and mechanisms of their effect, dezinfection and sterilization. Energetic metabolism. Genetics and molecular biology of microorganisms. Microflora of human body. Microbial diseases and their control.

Immunology: Cells and organs of the immune system. Antigens. Immune reaction. Main histocompatibility complex. B-lymphocytes. Production of immunoglobulins. Immunoglobulins, function and structure. T-lymphocytes and cellular immunity. Cytotoxic lymphocytes. Cytokines. Immunity against infection. Non-specific immunity. Allergic diseases. Immunity and nutrition. Immunopathology. Immunodeficiency. Autoimmune diseases.
