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 Yersina pestisHaemophilus influenzaStreptococcus viridansStaphylococcus aureusBacillus antracisKlebsiella pneumoniaBordetella pertussisStreptococcus pyogenesChlamydia pneumoniaPsuedomonas aeruginosaMycobacterium tuberculosisMycoplasma pneumoniaeB) Typical urogenital pathogens and commensalsNeisseria gonorrhoeaeStreoticiccus agalactiaeStaphylococcus saprophyticusClostridium perfringensS. pyogenesHaemophilus vaginalisUreaplasma urealyticumTreponema pallidumChlamydia trachomatisSerratia marcescensTrichomonas vaginalisC) Typical gastrointestinal pathogens and commensals -Campylobaacter jejuniEnterobacter faecalisSalmonella typhimurinShigella sonneiEscherichia coliBacillus cereusClostridium perfringensVibrio choleraeC. dificileHelicobacter pyloriAlcaligenes faecalisListeria monocytogenes

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
Yersina pestis

Haemophilus influenza
Streptococcus viridans

Staphylococcus aureus
Bacillus antracis

Klebsiella pneumonia
Bordetella pertussis

Streptococcus pyogenes
Chlamydia pneumonia

Psuedomonas aeruginosa
Mycobacterium tuberculosis

Mycoplasma pneumoniae

B) Typical urogenital pathogens and commensals

Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Streoticiccus agalactiae

Staphylococcus saprophyticus
Clostridium perfringens

S. pyogenes
Haemophilus vaginalis

Ureaplasma urealyticum
Treponema pallidum

Chlamydia trachomatis
Serratia marcescens

Trichomonas vaginalis

C) Typical gastrointestinal pathogens and commensals –

Campylobaacter jejuni
Enterobacter faecalis

Salmonella typhimurin
Shigella sonnei

Escherichia coli
Bacillus cereus

Clostridium perfringens
Vibrio cholerae

C. dificile
Helicobacter pylori

Alcaligenes faecalis
Listeria monocytogenes
