How are Bacteria and Viruses similar?
Both have DNA and RNA
- has a nucleus / organelles
- uni & multicellular
Can see with naked eye.
- Plant and Animals
Found in plant
- central vacuole
- cell wall
- needs a host to survive
- no nucleus / organelles
- Archea bacteria
- live in extreme conditions
- volcanoes and hydrothermal vents
Can be treated through antibiotics
Produces through binary fission
Has three basic shapes
Is a cell but with no nucleus
smallest of microbes
reproduces by Injecting its genetic material into a host cell
Composed of DNA and RNA surrounded by a portion coat called a capsid.
ebola, AIDS, and influenza
lives in or on another organism
can cause intestinal disorders
need a most environment to live. Can be transmitted through water, undercooked meat, and fecal matter.
a unicellular eukaryotic
can be made into food or medicines such as antibodies
is usually an unicellular eukaryotic, but other forms can be multicellular.

proteins produced when immune system detects harmful substance
contains weakened or a dead form of a pathogen
drugs used to kill bacteria or prevent their reproduction
substance thats designed to kill microbes before they enter body
occurs when bacteria develop a tolerance to survive treatment with rugs that once killed them.
use of living systems/organisms to develop/make products.
-Pro. Because bacteria multiply rapidly they can use them to create drugs
- Con. Could create new pathogen
