Medical Microbiology covers all aspects of the interrelationship between infectious agents and their hosts. It involves the study of characteristics of pathogens (bacteria, virus, fungi and prions). It also deals with the diagnosis and treatment of pathogens which are significant to public health. Recently the increasing incidence of microbial infections is ruling the whole world. The importance of genomics and molecular techniques in both diagnosis and study of pathogenesis is increasing day by day.

Bacterial infection is the disease caused by the bacteria. Bacteria are the major cause of human and animal diseases. The sources of bacteria are either from air or water. There are different types of bacteria which are responsible for causing diseases. Bacteria have a natural tendency to live under any climate condition. These bacteria enter human body and starts multiplying. The rapid multiplication of bacteria can affect our human body and may lead to many deadly diseases, but some of them are harmless and help our body in digestion, produce vitamins and helps with immunity.

A Virus is a very small organism and the infection caused from these viruses when they enter inside the human body is called viral infection. Virus cannot reproduce on their own, they need a host for its multiplication. These viruses introduce their genetic material inside the body with the help of host. They are generally surrounded by an envelope. The most common disease caused by virus are common-cold, HIV, influenza etc. Virus can also affect brain, liver, skin, reproductive and respiratory tract etc. There are various ways for the transmission of virus into the body like through saliva, touch, air, sexual contact and using contaminated needles.

The disease caused by fungus or fungal infection is known as mycosis. Fungus invades the tissues and cause systematic disease. These fungi can penetrate inside the human body through wounds and can cause infection. Other fungal infections occurs in moist environment which promote their growth and development. Fungi can also be used as a source for tinder, medicine, wine, cheese and edible mushroom etc.

Human microbiome is a whole array of thousands of different types of microorganism. It has greater impact on human health. Every individual’s microbiome is totally unique. This uniqueness helps us to identify the cause of certain disease in individuals. Recent research on human microbiome helps us to study more on the fundamental aspects of human physiology. It also helps us to develop new diagnostic techniques and treatments for different types of human diseases. The recent research on human microbiome has lead to the development of industrial products that are based on substances produced by the members of human microbiota.

The identification and detection of agents that cause infectious disease is very important in microbiological diagnostics. Different types of molecular methods have been identified in laboratories for the detection, characterization and diagnosis of disease due to organism. The whole concept of molecular method is based on the basic chemistry of DNA replication. It also helps in classification of organism based on genetic relatedness. Identification and confirmation of isolate obtained from culture and early detection of pathogens in clinical specimens. PCR has lead the way in this new era in the field of molecular technique in medical microbiology.

The inhibition of the growth of microorganism such as bacteria, virus, fungi etc is known as the antimicrobial therapy. Antimicrobial agents are the most widely used therapeutic drug all over the world. It helps to slow down the growth of microorganisms. The antimicrobial agent interfere with the cell wall, synthesis of nucleic acids, metabolic process within the microorganism, permeability of the cell membrane. Antimicrobial medicines are used to treat the infections caused by various microorganisms. The antimicrobial therapy can be orally, topically or through injection.

Forensic Science can be defined as the application of science to the criminal during the criminal investigation. Forensic microbiology helps in the criminal investigation with the study of microorganism. It deals with investigation of biological markers hidden in the DNA of living matter. The concept of microsatellites was introduced in the recent research which helps in identifying the pattern of DNA. It helps to determine everything from a person’s individual identity. Microbial genetic analysis is a new trend in this field. It also helps to examine microbial communities and in multidisciplinary concepts.

Environmental microbiology is the combination of microbial interaction and microbial processes in the environment. It is a branch of study of microorganism which includes air, water and soil microbiology. It includes the study of microbes, its surfaces, microbial community genetics. The study of certain microbes in extreme environmental conditions helps us to know the concept of rare microorganisms and their characteristics. Recent advances have shown result of adhesion and biofilm production, medical biofilm and biofilm in infection etc.

Nanoscience is the study of atoms, molecules and objects in the nanoscale and has greater impact on several areas of microbiology. Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology in medicine which includes repairing of damaged tissues. Nanomedicine also helps in early diagnosis with help of biomarkers. Nanotechnology has greater application in medicine like molecular diagnostic test, biological imaging, drug delivey, regenerative medicine and infectious disease diagnosis etc. Recent research has shown that the detection of infectious agents has become easy with the help of nanosensors.
