Microbial Physiology

Microbial physiology is simply defined as the study of cell structure, growth factors, metabolic functions, the need for healthy eating, and genetic makeup. It is usually a study of the metabolic activities of microorganisms at both cellular and cellular levels. Physiology is defined as the study of living processes in living cells. Microbial physiology also incorporates research into the microbial genome and how microorganisms acquire substrates in their environment and digest them in the same way in their growth. Microbial physiology research helps microbiologists identify the cellular functions of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and how changes in the bacterial environment affect their growth or genetic makeup.
