Microbiology is the study of microorganisms along with their helpful and harmful effects on humans. Microbiology was introduced as a scientific discipline by Louis Pasteur, who established that microbial activity occurred due to fermentation.
Microorganisms have paved the way for the study of genetics and biochemistry. Genetic manipulation, molecular engineering, and advanced biochemical techniques are made possible through this study.
