DH5α is specific strain of E. coli that is a nonpathogenic bacterium belonging to the genus Escherichia. I used this type of bacteria to study comparative growth rates at different temperatures (28°C, 37°C, and 45°C) and for different times (24h, 48h, and 72h). I predicted that bacteria would grow best at 37°C compared to the other temperatures, because the mean temperature of many mammals is 37°C. Mammals often serve as a host to E. coli. To compare growth rates, I grew the bacteria in liquid…

The Comparison of Biofilm Formation, Mechanical and Chemical Properties between Glass Ionomer Cement and Giomer

TLDR
The compressive strength of Giomers is better than GIC; however, the biofilm formation of Giomer is higher than G IC, whereas GIC has a higher fluoride content but inferior in surfaces morphology characteristic.

Influence of prior pH and thermal stresses on thermal tolerance of foodborne pathogens

TLDR
Findings in this study clearly affirm that adaptation of bacteria to certain stresses may reduce the effectiveness of preservation procedures applied during later stage of food processing and storage.

EVOLUTION OF THERMAL DEPENDENCE OF GROWTH RATE OF ESCHERICHIA COLI POPULATIONS DURING 20,000 GENERATIONS IN A CONSTANT ENVIRONMENT

TLDR
Twelve experimental populations of the bacterium Escherichia coli evolved for 20,000 generations in a defined medium at 37°C to quantify the extent to which they became thermal specialists with diminished performance at other temperatures, and whether antagonistic pleiotropy or mutation accumulation was primarily responsible for any thermal specialization.

EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION TO TEMPERATURE. VII. EXTENSION OF THE UPPER THERMAL LIMIT OF ESCHERICHIA COLI

TLDR
None of the four thermotolerant mutants had an advantage relative to their progenitor even very near the upper limit of the thermal niche; in fact, all of the mutants showed a noticeable loss of fitness around 41°C, distinct from those that permit tolerance of otherwise lethal temperatures.

A Symphony of Bacterial Voices

TLDR
As researchers tease out the molecular details of how bacteria sense and respond to their neighbors, they may learn how to foul up the counting systems of specific strains, which could lead to ways to thwart the ability of pathogenic bacteria to cause illness without generating side effects by wiping out indigenous flora, as current broad-spectrum antibiotics usually do.

EFFECT OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT ON BACTERIOLOGICAL WATER QUALITY IN COASTAL WATERSHEDS

Human development along the land–seawater interface is considered to have significant environmental consequences. Development can also pose an increased human health risk. In a rapidly developing

Genetic engineering of bacteria from managed and natural habitats.

TLDR
If safely deployed, genetically modified bacteria should be able to provide significant benefits in the management of environmental systems and in the development of new environmental control processes.
