Typical oral/respiratory tract pathogens and commensals Streptococcus pneumonia




M4A1: Create Your Own Bacterial Key;Throughout the previous modules you have gained information on the methods used to;distinguish different bacteria from one another. This activity serves to reinforce the concepts;associated with biochemical tests, help you learn the metabolic strategies associated with;individual or groups of bacteria, and strengthen your understanding of basic morphological;differences. For this assignment, you are to choose one (1) of the groups, either A);oral/respiratory tract pathogens and commensals, or B) urogenital pathogens and;commensals or C) gastrointestinal tract pathogens and commensals, and develop a key based on;differential staining and culturing, morphology and the suite of biochemical tests available to;identify bacteria.;A) Typical oral/respiratory tract pathogens and commensals Streptococcus pneumonia;Haemophilus influenza;Staphylococcus aureus;Klebsiella pneumonia;Streptococcus pyogenes;Psuedomonas aeruginosa;Mycoplasma pneumoniae;Yersina pestis;Streptococcus viridans;Bacillus antracis;Bordetella pertussis;Chlamydia pneumonia;Mycobacterium tuberculosis;M4A2: Project 1 (I chose the topic Pseudomonas);Background;You are the science reporter for your local newspaper. Your editor asks you to write an article on;a major topic within the general field of microbiology. He stipulates that in this article you need;to include the following three things;An historical timeline for the major scientific discoveries that has led to our current;understanding of the topic.;2.;A summary of our current understanding of the topic.;3.;A projection of where the next major advance or breakthrough in your topic will come;from.;1.;Description;For project 1 you will do your background research. Specifically, you will choose a suitable;topic, identify appropriate resources, and generate a brief outline of the article which you will;write for Project 2. Your topic must fall under the following subheadings;Microbiology and human health;Microbiology and the environment;Microbiology and agriculture;Microbiology and industry;Procedure;1.;Consult your textbook to choose a topic under one of the four subheadings listed above.;For example, from the area Microbiology and industry, you might examine the use of organisms;by the alcoholic beverage industry. More specifically, are you interested in wine and the grapes;that produce it? You could investigate the actions of a fungus called noble rot or the cultures;involved in the fermentation of the grapes. [Need help choosing a topic?];2.;Email your topic to your instructor for approval.;3.;Once your receive instructor approval, do some background research on your topic to get;more familiar with it. Using the Credo Reference and/or Britannica Online: Academic;Edition databases, find 1-2 articles/encyclopedia entries on your topic that will help you;complete your Project 2 article. You can access these databases from the Librarys Background;Information page.;4.;Now that you have some grounding in your topic, find 5-6 peer-reviewed research;articles that will help you complete your Project 2 article using the Librarys OneSearch tool.;OneSearch is found on the Librarys homepage. Watch the OneSearch Tips video for assistance;getting started. [Note: In OneSearch you can limit your results to peer-reviewed journals.];5.;You should now have a total of at least 7 sources to use for your Project 2 article.;6.;After reading the sources, think of the main points that you will cover and develop an;outline for your Project 2 article. [Need help writing an outline?];7.;In a single Word document, submit your outline and list of at least 7 sources (references);in APA format and place it in the appropriate assignment dropbox.
