This site contains notes for an introductory Microbiology class studying the physical control of microorganisms. Environmental properties used to control microbes include temperature, osmotic pressure, oxygen deprivation, pH, ultraviolet (UV) light, and filtration. Extremophiles are discussed because of their ability to withstand extreme physical conditions in the environment.
