What is Microbiology?

Microbiology is the study of microorganisms, including fungi, bacteria, viruses, and certain types of parasites. These infectious agents are too small to be seen with the naked eye. Microbiology covers important areas such as virology, mycology, and parasitology. It also encompasses the study of viruses that may not technically be classified as living organisms but contain genetic material. Microbiology research explores the behavior, ecology, evolution, and pathology of diseases caused by these microorganisms.
