Medical Uses Probiotics: Some bacteria, such as acidophilus, are considered "friendly." Many species of bacteria live in our intestines, promoting good digestion and immune health. Our understanding of bacteria allows the biotechnology field to produce insulin, growth factors and antibodies for the medical industry.
Casual Uses Bacteria have been used for thousands of years in the production of food. Cheese, pickles, soy sauce, sauerkraut, vinegar, wine and yogurt are all examples of the usefulness of bacteria.
Future Uses Bioremediation is the waste-processing of toxic pollutants by bacteria, in order to turn harmful sewage into innocuous substances. Biological pest control is an environmentally friendly way to protect crops, with little to no effect on humans, wildlife, or pollinators and other beneficial insects. Bacteria can even be used to help us produce electricity without fossil fuels.
Notes This is the only page of notes. gram-negative: classification of bacteria... have a second lipid bilayer, which prevents the staining material from entering... antibiotics are ineffective on these
Just kidding trollololololololol. Notes Bacteria are also being used in modern sewage disposal known as Bioremediation, it is a process by which bacteria are added to water or soil to convert toxic pollutants, such as pesticides and oil, into harmless substances. Pest Control: If you hate using smelly and harmful insecticides, you may think about turning to bacteria as a form of natural pest control. ScienceDaily.com reports that certain bacteria take on new characteristics when applied to certain plants, and when consumed by pests like aphids, causes them to degenerate and reproduce more slowly, resulting in natural pest control for you. Bacteria are prokaryotes, that is, they are organisms that lack membranes surrounding their genetic material.

Vocab Match up Bioremediation Prokaryotes Gram-negative Classification of bacteria... have a second lipid bilayer, which prevents the staining material from entering... antibiotics are ineffective on these. Any process that uses microorganism to return the environment altered by contaminants to its original condition. An organism of the kingdom Monera (or Prokaryotae), comprising the bacteria and cyanobacteria, characterized by the absence of a distinct, membrane-bound nucleus or membrane- bound organelles, and by DNA that is not organized into chromosomes. Also called moneran.
