Microbes and technology f.1.

  1. 1. Diversity of Eubacteria: Shape<br />
  2. 2. Structure of Cell Wall<br />Grama-positive: <br />Plasma membrane made of and <br /> layer of peptidoglycan<br />Gram-negative:<br />Plasma membrane made of and <br />layer of peptidoglycan<br />Outer layer made of and <br />
  3. 3. Formation of Aggregates <br />VibrioFischeri: <br />V. Fischeri is found in seawater and is able to emit light<br />Single individuals emit light unless they become part of a population with a high density<br />V. Fisheri releases an into its surroundings<br />In dense populations, the concentration of the inducer is high enough to trigger (emission of light)<br />
  4. 4. Structure of Viruses<br />There are three key differences in virus structures: <br /> <br />1. Naked or Enveloped Capsid?<br />Definition of Capsid: Protein coat<br />Naked capsid -> outside the capsid<br />Enveloped capisid-> outside the capsid<br />2. DNA or RNA?<br />Genes composed of either DNA or RNA<br />3. Single or Double-Stranded?<br />Genes single stranded or double stranded, whether they are composed of DNA or RNA<br />
