Test 1

Define Microorganism too small to be seen with the unaided eye
Define Germ rapidly growing cell
Carolus Linnaeus Est. binomial nomenclature
Types of microorganism Bacteria,archaea,fungi,protozoa,algae,multicellualr animal parasites, viruses
Bacteria Prokaryotes- unicellular
Bacterial shapes Bacillus,coccus,spiral,stella
bacterial cell wall peptidoglycan
Archaea Prokaryotes- non pathogenic
archaea wall may or may not have a cell wall- no peptidoglycan
main archaea groups methanogen,halophiles,thermophiles
Fungi Eukaryotes
fungi groups yeast (uni), mold, mushroom (multi)
Fungi cell wall CHITIN
Protozoa Eukaryotes- unicellular
Protozoa Moves by pseudopods,flagella, or cilia
Algae Eukaryotes- uni/multicellular
Algae Cell wall Cellulose
Helminths Eukaryotes- multicellular
Viruses Acellular
Characteristics of Viruses so small need an electron microscope to view, simple,core contain DNA or RNA
Virus Core surrounded by protein coat
Virus protein coat may be encased by an additional layer "envelope"
Carl Woese devised the 3 domains
Domain System Bacteria, Archaea, Eukarya

Spontaneous Generation (abiogenesis) form of life could arise spontaneously from non living matter.
Biogenesis Living organisms arise from preexisting life
Francisco Redi BG- maggots do not arise from decaying meat
John Needham SG- uses nutrient broth poured into a covered flask = microbes
Spallanzani BG- challenged Needham
Pasteur BG- microbes can be present in non living matter, can be destroyed by heat, aseptic techniques can be used
