Trivia about bacteria

  • With some helpful & some harmful to humans, they come in 3 shapes: rod-shaped, round & spiral
  • E. coli, one of these found in humans, is often used in genetic studies
  • Yogurt is made by curdling milk with purified cultures of these, like Streptococcus thermophilus
  • Antibiotics don't work against viruses; they do work against these, like the tubercle bacillus
  • (Jimmy of the Clue Crew presents the clue on a monitor.) Round, rod-like, and spiral are the three main shapes of these organisms

  • The process of pasteurization kills harmful types of these in milk
  • These one-celled organisms that may cause disease also produce the "snipping" enzymes that create recombinant DNA
  • Amoxicillin is used to treat infections caued by these
  • Toxins from these single-celled organisms can cause diseases like botulism
  • A Kraft foods "healthy living" primer notes that billions of these "live naturally in everyone's digestive system"
  • (Sarah of the Clue Crew presents from the Plasma Physics Lab at Princeton.) Scientists are experimenting with plasma as a means to sterilize food containers & destroy spores of these microorganisms of the kingdom Monera
  • Leeuwenhoek made the first drawings of these microorganisms, which he scraped off teeth
  • The oldest signs of life on Earth are fossilized ancestors of these one-celled organisms
  • (Cheryl of the Clue Crew delivers the clue.) If a bite that could puncture a car roof wasn't enough, T. rex's teeth have recesses where these live; if the bite didn't kill you, the infection would
