Choose a resident microbe from the FAQ: Human Microbiome document that you viewed in Module 1.To learn more about what a microbe is, and our own microbiome, follow this link to a recent report from the American Academy of Microbiology, FAQ: Human Microbiome.) ( Describe its symbiotic role within our microbiome. Do a little independent research to determine whether this microbe can become pathogenic. If so, describe the conditions under which this microbe assumes this opportunistic role. Be sure to cite your references and include a references section.
SLP Assignment Expectations
To complete Part I, complete your readings by the due date. You may use the readings from your Boundless etext and the FAQ: Human Microbiome pdf as scholarly references to complete Part II. Include a References section that lists these and any additional sources you used (refer to the Background page). For any additional research you do to complete your assignment, please use scholarly references such as a peer-reviewed journal article or a government-sponsored or university-sponsored website. As you read through your sources, take notes from your sources and then write your paper in your own words, describing what you have learned from your research. Direct quotes should be limited and must be designated by quotation marks. Paraphrased ideas must give credit to the original author, for example (Murray, 2014). Direct copying from “homework help” websites will not receive credit.
In this essay, I will discuss the differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. I will then discuss three phenotypic systems used to classify microbes. Finally, I will close with classifying Escherichia coli & Streptococcus based on the phenotype systems
