OMICS Group invites all the participants across the globe to attend the 2nd International Congress on Bacteriology and Infectious Diseases during November 17-19, 2014 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago-North Shore, USA.
Bacteriology-2014 is a remarkable event which brings together a unique and International mix of Bacteriologist and Microbiologist from leading universities and research institutions making the conference a perfect platform to share experience, foster collaboration across industry and academia, and evaluate emerging technologies across the globe.
2nd International Congress on Bacteriology and Infectious Diseases will schedule and coordinate all meetings with our Editorial Board Members and other experts in the Bacteriology field across the world. The scientific program paves a way to gather visionaries through the research talks and presentations and put forward many thought provoking strategies on Bacteriology-2014.
The Bacteria are a group of single-cell microorganisms with procaryotic cellular configuration. The genetic material (DNA) of procaryotic cells exists unbound in the cytoplasm of the cells. There is no nuclear membrane, which is the definitive characteristic of eucaryotic cells such as those that make up, fungi, protista, plants and animals. Until recently, bacteria were the only known type of procaryotic cell, and the discipline of biology related to their study is called bacteriology. In the 1980's, with the outbreak of molecular techniques applied to phylogeny of life, another group of procaryotes was defined and informally named "archaebacteria". This group of procaryotes has since been renamed Archaea and has been awarded biological Domain status on the level with Bacteria and Eucarya. The current science of bacteriology includes the study of both domains of procaryotic cells, but the name "bacteriology" is not likely to change to reflect the inclusion of archaea in the discipline. Actually, many archaea have been studied as intensively and as long as their bacterial counterparts, except with the notion that they were bacteria.
Because of the similarity of thinking and working with microorganisms other than bacteria, such as protozoa, fungi, and viruses, there has been a tendency for the field of bacteriology to extend as microbiology. The terms were formerly often used interchangeably. However, bacteriology can be classified as a distinct science.
Most bacteria won't hurt you - less than 1 percent of the different types make people sick. Many are helpful. Some bacteria help to digest food, destroy disease-causing cells, and give the body needed vitamins. Bacteria are also used in making healthy foods like yogurt and cheese.
But infectious bacteria can make you ill. They reproduce quickly in your body. Many give off chemicals called toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Examples of bacteria that cause infections include Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and E. coli.
Antibiotics are the usual treatment. When you take antibiotics, follow the directions carefully. Each time you take antibiotics, you increase the chances that bacteria in your body will learn to resist them. Later, you could get or spread an infection that those antibiotics cannot cure.
