Micro-organisms have been in environment for at least 3,500 million years and were the only life forms on Earth. Microbes affect every form of life on earth. With other types of Microbes, Bacteria plays major role in enhancing many activities. This evaluates outlines how bacterium is rising in today’s life. The review report also highlights the beneficial activities of bacteria in terms of enzymatic, and in the diagnosis of diseases 


The Intestinal Life Cycle of Bacillus subtilis and Close Relatives
This is the first report showing an intestinal life cycle of B. subtilis and suggests that other Bacillus species could also be members of the gut microflora.
Probiotics: Growth-Promoting Factors Produced by Microorganisms
A consistent 50-percent increase in growth has been obtained with Tetrahymena pyriformis in response to a factor produced by Colpidium campylum.
Potential Applications of Cyanobacteria in Industrial Effluents-A Review
The present study focused attention on the review of papers potential application of cyanobacteria for the removal of heavy metal ions, nutrients, pesticide from the waste water of different effluents.
Prebiotics and Probiotics
Bacterial population in intestinal contents increase in a distal direction in the gastro-intestinal tract from 103–104/mL in the stomach to 106– 107/ mL in the distal ileum and 1011–1012/L in the colon.
Exopolysaccharides Production by Lactic Acid Bacteria
In this review, EPSs production by LAB, including chemical composition, structure, biosynthesis, genetics and application of EPSs produced by LLAB is discussed.
Oligosaccharides from Agro-Biomass are Potential Prebiotics
Use of preferentially replicating bacteria for the treatment of cancer.
Bacteria are motile, which facilitates their spread throughout the tumor and can help target systemic disease, and their spread can be controlled with antibiotics if necessary.
Probiotic Bacteria as Biological Control Agents in Aquaculture
This review describes the state of the art of probiotic research in the culture of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and live food, with an evaluation of the results obtained so far.
Toward an ecological classification of soil bacteria.
Survey, experimental, and meta-analytical results suggest that certain bacterial phyla can be differentiated into copiotrophic and oligotrophic categories that correspond to the r- and K-selected categories used to describe the ecological attributes of plants and animals.
