    can only be visualized by the aid of a compound-brightfield microscope. While we generally cannot see individual microorganisms with the naked eye, they are present in virtually every habitat known to man. Microorganisms can be prokaryotic—the bacteria or eukaryotic—the algae, protozoa or fungi. While viruses are acellular they are also studied in the scope of microbiology because they are small and because they infect cells. While most bacterial are unicellular they can also exist in colonial

    that was not exposed to the pGLO plasmid that had Luria Bertani nutrient broth (LB) added, had lawn growth in all Petri dishes. This bacteria did not glow, the phenotype for the GFP gene, as the bacteria wasn’t exposed to the pGLO plasmid containing the GFP gene. Without the gene in the bacterial genome, the E. coli would be unable to express that phenotype. The bacteria also showed extreme growth in the form of a lawn. This is because the LB broth provided E. coli with the required nutrients and allowed

    Unknown bacteria determined to be Alcaligenes faecalis because of its morphological, physiological and metabolic properties. In a laboratory setting, it often becomes necessary to identify an unknown organism. In this experiment, researchers classified an unidentified bacterium based on its physical structure, colony morphology, optimal conditions and metabolic properties. A Gram stain using crystal violet, iodine, and safranin and a simple stain using methylene blue characterized the organism’s

    _____________ Can brushing your teeth kill you? There are many types of bacteria that can be found in your bathroom. They might also be found on your toothbrush! I have been researching about what bacteria are lurking in my bathroom. I placed 6 petri dishes filled with agar in my bathroom. I left them there for 24 hours to collect bacteria samples. Bacillus, Coccus, and spirillum are the three main kinds of bacteria. Bacillus are rod shaped. Cocci are spherical shaped. Finally spirillum are spiral

    evidence that its bacterial component plays a role in the occurrence of chronic diseases [1]. In this regard, gastrointestinal tract (GIT) (or gut) bacteria are very important [2], being the niche for many bacteria which have been extensively studied [3]. Rather than the action of single or group of gut bacteria, perturbation of the overall gut bacteria (dysbiosis) is crucial for the integrity of the GIT and extra-GIT disorders [4]. The gut bacterial composition is influenced by both intrinsic and

    Virus and Bacteria Virus - A virus is a capsule of protein that contains genetic material. A virus cannot reproduce on its own; it must infect a living cell to grow. Bacteria - Bacteria are one-celled organisms that live on their own. They can multiply and reproduce by subdivision Bacteria and viruses cause many of the diseases we are familiar with and may sound synonymous; they are greatly different from each other. [pic] o They differ greatly in size. The biggest viruses are only as large

    Mycobacteria are rod-shaped bacteria which require oxygen for growth. Each species has an acid-fast staining property during some stage of its growth cycle. It has thick, waxy, outer coating which can lead them to thrive in aquatic environments. For some time, scientists have known of bacteria that are similar to Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but that grow and act differently. When tuberculosis was a much more widespread problem and microbiology was much less able to tell the difference between similar

    Bacteria can be divided into two types of species, gram positive bacteria and gram negative bacteria. To determine whether a certain type of bacteria was classified tests were conducted by Hans Christian Gram; who discovered the differences within the cell walls of the bacteria. Gram positive bacteria have a thick wall which consists of the protein peptidoglycan. This is opposite to gram negative bacteria which has a thin cell wall, which fold over each other (Wells, 2017). They retain a much thinner

Background information Bacteria affected 2 million people from antibiotic resistance bacteria and 23,000 die per year due to the infections. Bacteria works by entering the body in various ways, they can enter past nose, mouth or ears as they are small, they can be inhaled from the air, eaten from food as well as through cuts/ open wounds. Bacteria enters the body and

    Gram Positive Bacteria: After picking test tube #2, I inoculated a CNA plate to isolate my Gram positive bacteria. The colistin nalidixic acid in the media inhibits the growth of Gram negative bacteria, the acid affets the outer membrane of the Gram negative so they are unable to reproduce. This test is performed to determine if the Gram positvie bacterium growing on the plate has the ability to break down sheep red bloold cells. After the CNA was incubated in a candle jar, I saw alpha hemolysis
