micro lec 1
Card Set Information
micro lec 1
deliberate modification of an organism's genetic information by directly changing its genome (DNA)
recombinant DNA technology
procedure use to carry out genetic engineering
-produces toxin which is effective toward catepillars
study of behavior and acitivities of microbes in natural environment
denature target DNA (heating)
-anneal primers that are specific to DNA
plasmid with genes from pathogen inject, to produce immune response
-gram (+), produces toxin which is effective toward caterpillars, move toward palnts
to take up metals
biodegradation prcoess is best way to carry out..
to use natural microbe
symbiosis. microbe/host relationship
relationship beneficial to both partners
partners cant survive without each other
microbe releasing this is..Methanogenic, Ardraea, and Acetogenic bacteria
-methanogienic archaea makes CH4 and Acetogenic bacteria makes acetate
love acidic environment
form of iron and sulfur,..
make metals very soluble, and make toxic liquid/condition
found in soil and opportunistic pathogen
competitive relationship between host and parasite.
host lose competition resulting change in general good heatlh
microbe are benign til defenses are down, microbes invade.
alawys cause disease
sometimes causes diseases
do not cause disease
disease mat occurs at low level in certain area
breaks out in explosive proportions within population
