Brief Course Description: Two-thirds of the earth is covered with water. The water is filled with microorganisms. A milliliter of Puget Sound or Pacific Ocean water contains millions of microorganisms. A gram of Lake Washington or Puget Sound sediment contains billions of bacteria. What are they all doing? How do you study organisms that are so small? Are they really important?
Register for FISH 490 or MICROM 490 to learn about the incredible microbes that live in the seas, lakes, and rivers on planet earth.
