What are the Basic Conditions and Types of Bacterial Growth?

Basic Conditions and Types of bacterial growth

Bacteria are cultivated and studied under laboratory conditions. Numerous media(singular, medium) have been developed for bacterial cultivation. Because the nutritional requirements of bacteria vary widely, there are great differences in the chemical compositions of the media used in the laboratory. This article gives the details of Bacterial growth. Bacterial Growth …

What is Bacterial Stress Response?

Bacterial stress response

Bacteria can survive under varied conditions (called Bacterial Stress Response), and to overcome adverse situations, the changes must be sensed by bacteria and mount reactions in protein activity and gene expression. The stress reaction in bacteria involves a system of components that behave against the stimulation. Compounds can respond simultaneously …

Microbial Physiology: Yields of Microbes

Microbial Physiology: Yields of Microbes

Microorganisms are generally found in nature (air, soil, and water) as mixed populations. Even the diseased pans of plants and animals contain a great number of microorganisms, which differ markedly from the microorganisms of other environments. This is the basic guide on microbial physiology. To study the specific role played by …

Bacterial Cell: Structure and its Composition

Bacterial cell structure

Bacteriology is the study of bacteria. Bacteria are minute, microscopic, simple, unicellular prokaryotic organisms occurring as saprophytes and parasites on a wide range of habitats. Structurally a bacteria cell consists of three categories of structurally namely, Structures of the External side of the cell wall.Cell wallStructures of the Internal side …

Microbial growth and its Basics

Microbial or Bacterial Growth

Microbial growth may be described as occurring in different ways under different circumstances. Microbial growth is usually studied as a population, not an individual. Individual cells divide in a process called binary fission where two daughter cells arise from a single cell. The daughter cells are identical except for the …
