Module 1 - Foundations of Microbiology and Lab Safety – Chapters 1 & 2:
Know the various classes of microorganisms and unique features and characteristics of each:
Bacteria- one of the two domains of prokaryotes; all medically important prokaryotes are in the domain Bacteria. bacteria are single-celled or noncellular spherical or spiral or rod-shaped organisms that reproduce by fission.
Protozoans-Group of single-celled eukaryotic organisms. protozoans are colorless mobile organisms. They feed on other organisms for their source of energy.

Fungi-A non-photosynthetic eukaryotic heterotroph. fungi can consist of yeast, mold, and mushrooms. They are not microbes. Some are pathogenic and can cause disease in humans and animals.
Viruses-Acellular or non-living agent composed of nucleic acid surrounded by a protein coat.
Prions-Infectious protein that has no nucleic acid.
Describe characteristics and importance of the four major macromolecules – review the structure of each macromolecule (what they are comprised of) as well as examples:
Carbohydrates-Compounds containing principally carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms in a ratio of 1:2:1. Are a group of organic compounds in foods and living tissues and consist of sugars, starch, and cellulose. They can be broken down to release energy in the body
Proteins-Macromolecule containing one or more polypeptide chains. are nitrogenous organic compounds that have one or more amino acid chains. They are structural components of body tissues, enzymes and antibodies
Lipids-One of a diverse group of organic substances all of which are relatively insoluble in water, but soluble in alcohol, ether, chloroform, or other fat solvents. are organic compounds of fatty acids, which are insoluble in water and soluble in organic solvents.
Nucleic acids-Ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). are a complex organic

    Bacteria - Bacteria are organisms made up of just 1 cell. They are capable of multiplying by themselves, as they have the power to divide. Bacteria exist everywhere, inside and on our bodies. Most of them are completely harmless and some of them are very useful. But some bacteria can cause diseases, either because they end up in the wrong place in the body or simply because they are 'designed' to invade us.…

    Bacteria are living things that are neither plants nor animals, but belong to a group all by themselves. They are very small--individually not more than one single cell--however there are normally millions of them together, for they can multiply really fast.Bacteria are prokaryotes (single cells that do not contain a nucleus).…

    Microbiology is the branch of biology that deals with microorganisms and their effect on other living organisms. Microbes are very small organisms which can only be viewed with the aid of microscope. Several groups of organisms that fit into this category are bacteria, cyanobacteria, fungi and protists. Within this group there are several species interesting to humans because of their ability to cause disease or their use in the food industry and microorganisms can be classified to unicellular and multicellular. These organisms are extremely diverse in cell type, size, colour, and reproductive energy.…

    Bacteria are single-cell organisms, they are living things that belong to a group of their own, and therefore they are not classed as animals or plants. They are usually only a few mm in length, can be spherical, rod or spiral shaped, contain a cell wall and normally exist together in millions. Bacteria can only reproduce asexually and does not contain a nucleus. Bacteria can be beneficial, but it can also be pathogenic (cause disease in humans).…

    Introduction to Mycology

    The living world is divided into the five kingdoms of Planta, Animalia, Fungi, Protista and Monera. It is important to recognize that the fungi are not related to bacteria (Monera). To define the exact limits of the groups in a few words is virtually impossible, however generally speaking fungi are eukaryotica, heterotrophicb, unicellular to filamentous, rigid cell walledc, sporebearing organisms that usually reproduce by both sexual and asexual means. Further they are insensitive to antibacterial antibiotics. a Eukaryotic cells contain membrane bound cell organelles including nuclei, mitochondria, golgi apparatus, endoplasmic reticulum, lysosomes etc. Eukaryotes also exhibit mitosis. These features separate fungi from bacterial which are prokaryotic cells lacking the above structures. Heterotrophic - fungi lack chlorophyll and are therefore not autotrophic (photosynthetic) like plants and algae; rather they are heterotrophic absorptive organisms that are either saprophytes (living on dead organic matter) or parasites (utilizing living tissue). Like plants, fungi have rigid cell walls and are therefore non-motile, a feature which separates them from animals.…

    Bacteria - are micro-organisms that consist of only one cell. Bacteria multiply by splitting themselves in two, which is called a binary fission. Because of this they can increase in number rapidly. The majority are harmless, but some can be pathogenic which results in bacterial infection occuring. Bacterial infections can be treated by using antibiotics. Bacteria can evolve a resistance to antibiotic e.g. MRSA. Some diseases caused by bacteria include tuberculosis, pneumonia, salmonella, tetanus and syphilis.…

    A microorganism (from the Greek: μικρός, mikros, "small" and ὀργανισμός, organismós, "organism") is a microscopic organism, which may be a single cell[1] or multicellular organism. The study of microorganisms is called microbiology, a subject that began with Antonie van Leeuwenhoek's discovery of microorganisms in 1675, using a microscope of his own design.…

    Bacteria are a large group of unicellular microorganisms. Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria have a wide range of shapes, ranging from spheres to rods and spirals. Bacteria are ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth, growing in soil, acidic hot springs, radioactive waste, water, and deep in the Earth's crust, as well as in organic matter and the live bodies of plants and animals. There are typically 40 million bacterial cells in a gram of soil and a million bacterial cells in a millilitre of fresh water; in all, there are approximately five nonillion (5 1030) bacteria on Earth, forming much of the world's biomass.…
