Microbiology

Title

Microbiologists deal with the study of micro-organisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses, usually only seen with a microscope. They identify organisms that cause disease, they test resistance to antibiotics, they look for contamination in food and water and develop and test antiseptics and vaccines.

Microbiologists usually have at least a degree in biology, biochemistry, microbiology or genetics. Entry requirements for degrees require at least one A-level science - usually Biology - but some prefer two or even more.
