As I mentioned in my previous post, I created a new course for IPAK-EDU called Microbiology For The Masses. It will help the general public in understanding the fundamentals of microbiology. When we have a sufficient number of people enrolled, we will announce the exact times and dates for the course. If there aren’t enough students for the spring semester, it will be postponed until the fall, so please enroll now:

You are not required to watch it live, and videos of each lecture will be made available so that you can watch them whenever it is convenient for you. I will also answer any questions you may have. There are also flexible payment options. You can watch it from anywhere on the planet. The knowledge you will gain from me is far more valuable than the price you will pay.

Here is the full video of the course summary; if you don’t want to watch it, the text is below.

–I created the class since despite being  invisible microorganisms have a visible impact on our lives.  They are everywhere,   on our skin, and even affect our brain. So, when we say, “My gut tells me,” we are referring to microorganisms. 

The production of food involves microorganisms. They made our beautiful planet Earth livable.  Microorganisms were the source of the first antibiotics, which saved millions of lives.

Some microorganisms   make us sick, but knowing them better would help prevent it. 

As you see, microorganisms play an important role in many aspects of life, so having a basic understanding of microbiology is quite beneficial.  As well, after finishing this course, you will be familiar with the most important methods for detecting microorganisms in humans, food, and the environment. The course is divided into 15 one-hour lectures. I’ll go over each lecture now.


1. History of microbiology

This class will introduce it to microbiology as a science discipline. You will discover that the history of microbiology is very interesting and is linked to some significant historical events. You’ll learn who the “Father of Microbiology” was and why it took him so long to persuade people that microorganisms exist and can be easily studied. I was also personally involved in investigating a portion of microbiology’s history. You’ll find out how and who I brought back into the spotlight.  

2. Types of Microorganisms

I’ll go over all seven types of microorganisms with you. How they were discovered and how they are related. There will be a lecture for each type of microorganism, detailing the most important representatives and how they affect our lives.

3. Cell structure, physiology and genetics of microorganisms

In this lecture, I will learn about what kind of cell types have the microorganisms. You will learn how their cells function and how genetic differences affect their behavior and impact on us. This lecture will not only provide you with a general understanding of cell biology, but it will also help you understand the fundamental concepts of biochemistry and molecular biology.

The following seven lectures go into greater detail about each type of microorganisms.

4. Viruses

Since everyone is talking about viruses these days, I imagine it would be one of the most interesting lectures.  There is debate over whether viruses are real and should be considered organisms. I’ll outline the current state of knowledge and the main issues surrounding the subject. I worked with herpes and influenza viruses. I have first-hand knowledge.

5. Bacteria

Bacteria are by far my favorite. I can’t deny it. I’ve worked with a lot of them, and I’ll tell you about the different types of bacteria and which ones you should be aware of. Like, the genus Streptomycetes, soil bacteria, are responsible for the smell of the soil, and thanks to them and the efforts of some extraordinary people, we have the first antibiotic that works against tuberculosis – streptomycin.

The pathogen that causes tuberculosis – Mycobacterium tuberculosis is from the same phylum (group with similar characteristics) as Actinobacteria –  Fascinating, isn’t it?! 

6. Fungi

You know the antibiotic penicillin and often need to get rid of the mold. Well, both are connected. The antibiotic is made by fungus and mold is a fungus.This is the lecture in which you will find out more about both and the rest of their family. To make bread you need fungi called yeast.

7. Slime molds

Slime molds are probably microorganisms you’ve never heard of, but they’re important because they provide antimicrobial agents. They also play an important role in the breaking down of organic matter. So, while they may not have the most appealing name or appearance, knowing them is critical.

8. Archaea

Archaea cells are different from the cells of all other organisms. They are organisms that can survive in harsh conditions. Their importance is linked to their ability to biodegrade pollutants.

9. Algae

You probably didn’t think that the green stuff in water is the reason we’re all here, but algaes are the ones who did the job. Algae changed the planet’s atmosphere early in its history by producing oxygen, paving the way for the evolution of eukaryotic organisms. Photosynthesizing algae in the ocean produce around 70% of oxygen in the atmosphere.They are also an important factor in determining water quality. This is a good reason to get to know them.

10. Protozoa

I’m sure you’ve heard of malaria which is caused by the protozoa genus Plasmodium  . They belong to the protozoa family. Will you learn which protozoa causes this disease and which other protozoa members are important. As a researcher, I also worked with malaria. Protozoa play critical roles in the dynamics of the environmental food web. Some use bacteria as food source, so regulating bacterial populations; they participate in wastewater treatment processes; and they maintain soil fertility by releasing nutrients when they digest bacteria.

11.Identification of microorganisms

You’ll learn about the various methods for identifying microorganisms.  Some are new, while others were discovered years ago and are still useful.

12. Microorganisms and human health

This lecture will teach you everything you need to know about the microorganisms that directly affect our health. How to keep disease-causing agents at bay while making those who are beneficial happy.

13.Microorganisms and food production

Microorganisms are involved in the production of a large percentage of common foods. This lecture will teach you about the different types of organisms involved and how to ensure that the food you buy isn’t contaminated with pathogens. It is important since food recalls are common as a result of microorganisms discovered in food after it has been placed on the market.

14.Microorganisms and soil

It is also a part of food production, but at a different level. Microorganisms play an important role in soil health and quality. Almost everyone has flowers and a garden, or imagines about having one. This lecture will teach you everything you need to know about growing healthy plants. Since soil is frequently contaminated, some soil microorganisms can assist in its cleanup.

15. Microorganisms and water

My master’s degree was in water microbiology. I’ll explain why it’s essential to comprehend water microorganisms. Is it possible to find microorganisms in the drinking water? How microorganisms help us in cleaning contaminated water.

As you can see, this class is important for everyone. Go to IPAK EDU website, scroll down until you find MIcrobiology for the masses, and enroll The lectures are set to take place in the spring. The exact times and dates will be announced later on the IPAC-EDU website. You can watch the lectures live or later whenever it is convenient for you, and I am always happy to answer your questions. You will receive the necessary information after enrolling. Please feel free to share this video because I am sure that many people need this type of education so you’ll be able to help them.

See you at the class!–


I’d also like to point out that despite not having any earnings. My blog and substack barely cover the costs of my website; the money I earn from the course will be used to accelerate Genuine Science Journal. It is extremely difficult to begin such a project due to the enormous bureaucracy in the European Union, and I cannot afford to pay for advice.
