  • Human microbiota
    The human microbiota is the aggregate of microorganisms, a microbiome that resides on or within a number of tissues and biofluids, including the skin, mammary glands, placenta, seminal fluid, uterus, ovarian follicles, lung, saliva, oral mucosa, conjunctiva, and gastrointestinal tracts.
  • Methanotroph
    Methanotrophs (sometimes called methanophiles) are prokaryotes that are able to metabolize methane as their only source of carbon and energy.
  • Coliform bacteria
    Coliform bacteria are a commonly used indicator of sanitary quality of foods and water.
  • Biogenic sulfide corrosion
    Biogenic sulfide corrosion is a bacterially mediated process of forming hydrogen sulfide gas and the subsequent conversion to sulfuric acid that attacks concrete and steel within wastewater environments.
  • Pleomorphism (microbiology)
    In microbiology, pleomorphism (from greek πλέω- more, and -μορφή form) is the ability of some bacteria to alter their shape or size in response to environmental conditions.
  • 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project
    'The All-Species Living Tree' Project is a collaboration between various academic groups/institutes, such as ARB, SILVA rRNA database project, and LPSN, with the aim of assembling a database of 16S rRNA sequences of all validly published species of Bacteria and Archaea.
  • Bacterial cellulose
    Bacterial cellulose is an organic compound with the formula (C6H10O5)n) produced by certain types of bacteria.
  • Bacteriuria
    In medicine, bacteriuria denotes the presence of bacteria in urine (but not if the bacteria's presence is due to contamination from urine sample collection.)
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis
    Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis is a bacterium responsible for difficult-to-treat infections in humans.
  • Multidrug tolerance
    Multidrug tolerance or antibiotic tolerance is the ability of a disease-causing microorganism to resist killing by antibiotics or other antimicrobials.
  • Microbial corrosion
    Microbial corrosion, also called bacterial corrosion, bio-corrosion, microbiologically influenced corrosion, or microbially induced corrosion (MIC), is corrosion caused or promoted by microorganisms, usually chemoautotrophs.
  • DD-transpeptidase
    DD-transpeptidase (EC 3.4.16.4, DD-peptidase, DD-transpeptidase, DD-carboxypeptidase, D-alanyl-D-alanine carboxypeptidase, D-alanyl-D-alanine-cleaving-peptidase, D-alanine carboxypeptidase, D-alanyl carboxypeptidase, and serine-type D-Ala-D-Ala carboxypeptidase.) is a bacterial enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of the R-Laca-D-alanyl moiety of R-L-aca-D-alanyl-D-alanine carbonyl donors to the γ-OH of their active-site serine and from this to a final acceptor.
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
    Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), also termed bacterial overgrowths, or small bowel bacterial overgrowth syndrome (SBBOS), is a disorder of excessive bacterial growth in the small intestine.
