Microbiology & Parasitology
parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or performance as vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that concurrently injures and derives sustenance as of its host. Some organisms called parasites are commensals, in that they neither assistance nor harm their host (for example, Entamoeba coli). Granting parasitology had its origins in the zoologic sciences, it is today an interdisciplinary field, greatly influenced by microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, and other life sciences.
