Lymes Disease

In this essay, you will write about one of the microbes below as if you are that microbe, hence it’s a microbial monologue.

Regardless which microbe you choose (or assigned), the following topics must be included whenever possible (if you cannot find any information, get in touch with me). You must include a self-portrait (comic drawing similar to the attached examples. Hand drawing and digital rendering are both acceptable) showing the most unique features (such as fimbriae and capsule) of this microbe. You must cite at least 3 different sources (scholarly articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals) for the information pertaining to the suggested topics below. Wikipedia is a good starting place, although it is not an acceptable reference. Google Scholar is the recommended website for searching references. 

Meaning of My Name
What do the root words in your name mean in Latin or Greek?
Understand the composition of binomial names and interpret the scientific names of bacteria.
For example, Escherichia coli, the genus name (or call it the first name) is from the discoverer, German-Austrian pediatrician Theodor Escherich; the species name is from where it was discovered, the colon.

My Other Names Has your name changed in history?
What do non-scientists call you?
Understand the self-correcting nature of scientific knowledge; differentiate scientific names and common names.
For example, E. coli was renamed Bacterium coli commune in 1919, but the name was not endorsed until 1958.

My Birth
When were you discovered?
Who was your foster parent? How did he or she find you? Appreciate the history of scientific discoveries; Understand why the discoverer is often called “Father of” something

My Home Where are you commonly found?
What is your growth environment like?
Recognize and explain the required factors for bacterial growth and survival

My Self Portrait
What do you look like under a microscope?
What is your body shape? Do you have a joint twin? Are you tall or short, thin or fat? Illustrate the microscopic appearance and behavior of the bacterium; understand the terms that describe bacterial shapes; recognize that microscopy images are often falsely colored

How Do I Travel Are you a good swimmer?
How do you swim? If you cannot swim, how do you travel? Identify the structures of bacteria that allow motility; discriminate self-motility from bacterial transmission routes

My City Bacterial cities are called colonies.
What does your city look like? Differentiate macromorphology from micromorphology; interpret the key terms that describe colony morphologies

My Talent & Fame
What distinguishes you from other microbes? What makes you famous or notorious? How do you make it to the news? Recognize and appreciate the distinguishing features and various roles of bacteria to humans and to the ecosystem

My Addiction
Are you addicted to certain types of food?
Do you smoke (making some kind of gas)? Recognize and appreciate bacterial utilization of certain chemicals for growth/survival; understand that bacterial survival may require gases other than oxygen; differentiate gas intake from gas production

My Enemy
What are you most afraid of (name of antimicrobials, antiseptics,sterilization methods, etc)?
How does it harm you (cell wall is your exoskeleton, flagellum is your leg, etc)
How does it harm you (cell wall is your exoskeleton, flagellum is your leg, etc)?
Recognize the chemicals and physical measures that can be used for bacterial growth control; understand the mechanism of the control measures

Be sure to use simple language so that even someone who has never taken college biology can understand it. Stick to the facts, yet use analogies to make it funny!
