Microorganisms survive at places where the most intelligent species fail to survive.
Thus, microbiology is interesting as it involves the study of such organisms which are superior to human, at least in case of surviving the extreme conditions !! Humans cannot survive in xerophytic condition or UV rays or a temperature Of 60-80 °C or pH below 3 or above 9 or even pressure of 1000 Atmosphere !!
Of course !! Industrial Microbiology - Use of microbes to obtain a product or service of economic value constitutes industrial microbiology. Do those small bugs also have industrial importance ?
Many different bacteria now exhibit multidrug resistance. The chief ones include Staphylococcus spp., Enterococcus spp., Gonococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Salmonella spp. and Mycobacterium tuberculosis .
One should use antibiotics only for bacterial infections.
Use the right antibiotic, do not rely on broad-range antibiotics.
Not stop antibiotics as soon as symptoms improve; finish the full course.
Not use antibiotics for most colds, coughs, bronchitis, sinus infections, and eye infections, which are caused by viruses.
Bioremediation is a natural process that uses microorganisms to transform harmful substances to an innocuous state, or to levels below concentration limits established by regulatory authorities (into non-toxic carbon dioxide, water, and fatty acids.)
‘ Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host
Prebiotics are a category of functional food, defined as:
Non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and/or activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon, and thus improve host health.
