Microbiologist, a scientist who studies microscopic life forms and processes is of high importance these days. This includes the study of growth, interactions and characteristics of microscopic organisms such as bacteria, algae, fungi and some types of parasites and their vectors. Microbiologists work to increase scientific knowledge and to utilize that knowledge in a way that improves outcomes in medicine and industry. Microbiologists working in the medical field, such as clinical microbiologists, may see patients or patient samples and do various tests to detect disease-causing organisms. Microbiologists will continue to be needed to advance basic science knowledge and to contribute to development of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology products. While some fear microbes due to the association of some microbes with various human diseases, many microbes are also responsible for numerous beneficial processes such as industrial fermentation like the production of alcohol, vinegar and dairy products, antibiotic production and act as molecular vehicles to transfer DNA to complex organisms such as plants and animals.
Scientists have also exploited their knowledge of microbes to produce biotechnologically important enzymes such as Taq polymerase, reporter genes for use in other genetic systems and novel molecular biology techniques such as the yeast two-hybrid system.

Corona viruses are enveloped viruses possessing a positive-sense single stranded RNA genome and a capsid with helical symmetry. These viruses have the largest genome (26 to 32 kilobases) among RNA viruses. These viruses were termed Corona virus due to their crown-like morphology under electron microscope. Corona viruses infect humans, other mammals, and birds and can cause respiratory, enteric, hepatic, and neurologic diseases as well as kidney and cardiac problems. So far, seven species of [...] READ MORE
Anyone can get infected with SARS-CoV-19, but people with a higher risk of serious illness need to take extra care. People with severe underlying medical conditions, such as heart or lung disease or diabetes, may be at increased risk of COVID-19 complications. [...] READ MORE
The primary cause of morbidity and mortality is the soft tissue infections after bacterial infection with saltwater exposure. Bacteriophages were being considered to be bacteria that absorb viruses, so active bacteriophages can be applied theoretically to prevent bacterial infections. Chitosan, a partly deacidified natural polymer derived from a crustacean shell or fungus, which has antimicrobial potential. [...] READ MORE
Resistant to many antibiotics, microorganisms have developed tremendous clinical problems in the treatment of infectious diseases. This study intends to identify the presence in the larval of Lucilia sericata of antibacterial properties. In order to achieve the objective, the body of the insect larval was injured by a sterile needle and larval extracts were prepared in three different pH, namely acidic (pH 5.0), neutral (pH 7.0) and alkaline (pH 8.0) buffers or water. [...] READ MORE
Observations on the nymphal instars of Macrotermes bellicosus were made to determine the applicability of Dyar’s law. Fifty nymphs each of various sizes were collected from three different mounds of M. bellicosus. The nymphs were sorted and then placed in Petri dishes separately. [...] READ MORE
