1 Bacteria 100 words

2 Bacteria §Prokaryotes l Genetic material is not in a nucleus

3 Bacteria §Come in three basic shapes. §Sphere : cocci §Rod : bacilli §Spiral

4 Bacteria : cocci Diplococcus

5 Bacteria : cocci Streptococcus

6 Bacteria : bacilli Streptococcus

7 Bacteria : Spiral

8 Bacteria §We are not going to get back into cell structure, however, it is at least worth looking at bacteria mobility. §Flagellum l long whip like structure l spins like a propeller l Rotary joint

9 Bacteria

10 Bacteria

11 Bacteria §Bacteria exist in two Kingdoms. §Archaebacteria l Live in extreme environments l Acids, intestines, sewage, 110 degree water etc l Produce foul odors §Eubacteria l Live everywhere else l Many are beneficial

12 Bacteria Reproduction §Asexual reproduction l Reproduction with only one parent l binary fission one cell divides to form two identical cells §Sexual Reproduction l Two parents combine genetic material l Conjugation Transfer genetic material through a thin bridge

13 Bacteria Conjugation

14 Bacteria binary fission

15 A tiny glimpse at the Virus Simple success

16 Virus

17 Virus §Non-living l Do not use energy to grow l Do not respond to their surroundings l Sub-microscopic l Unable to grow or reproduce outside a host cell. A host is an organism that harbors a virus or parasite.

18 Virus §Each viral particle, or virion, consists of just two parts l Genetic material, DNA or RNA. l A protective protein coat called a capsid.

19 Virus §Viruses multiply by entering a host cell and taking over cell function with its own genetic material. §The infected host cells then produce more protein and genetic material to assemble new virion.
