Key words

Theory :
The students acquire insight in the growth kinetics of bacteria, fungi and yeasts and in the techniques for measurment of microbial growth; in the build up of fermentation processes and in the culture principals; in the preparation of cheese, antibiotics and salami.
Practical :
The students learn to produce a growthcurve; to build up a fermentationprocess and to isolate and characterize fermentation products.

Theory :
The micro-organism; the fermentationprocess; antibiotics and their preparation; the preparation of cheese and the preparation of salami.
Practical :
Production of a growth curve; build up of a fermentation process; isolation and characterisation of antibiotics produced by bacteria and of metabolietes produced by yeasts; thermal destruction of micro-organisms; conservation techniques for MO; determination of the most probable number and of the fenol coefficient.

Basic knowledge of microbiology and biochemistry
