As a basic biological science, microbiology provides some of the most accessible research tools for probing the nature of life processes. Our most sophisticated understanding of the chemical and physical principles behind living processes has arisen from studies using microorganisms. This is in large part because microbial cells share many biochemical properties with cells of multi cellular organisms. And this, coupled with the fact that microbial cells can reach extremely high cell densities in culture and are readily amenable to genetic study, makes them excellent models for understanding cell function in plants and animals.
As an applied biological science, microbiology deals with many important practical problems in medicine, agriculture and industry. Some of the most important diseases of humans, animals and plants are caused by microorganisms. Microorganisms play major roles in soil fertility and animal production. Many large-scale industrial processes are microbial based, which has led to the development of a whole new discipline, biotechnology.
A few species of bacteria, such as some members of the genus Pseudomonas, can use crude oil for energy. They can grow in water with only oil, potassium phosphate and urea (a nitrogen source) as nutrients. These organisms can clean up oil spills in the ocean acting as 'Bioremediators'. They have also proven useful in degrading oil that remains in the water carried by tankers.
A detergent like substance has been secreted from these organisms. When these detergents is added to a quantity of oil sludge, it converts 90% of the sludge into useable petroleum in about 4 days, thereby reducing waste and providing a convenient means by cleaning oil fouled tanks.
A candidate who has passed PUC / 10+2 or equivalent with Physics, Chemistry and Biology in Pre-University.
