- Bacterial cell structure : Morphological and genetic features of unicellular prokaryotic organisms characterized by the lack of a membrane-bound nucleus and membrane-bound organelles.
- Bacteria : A major group of single-celled microorganisms.
- Bacteriophage : A virus that infects bacteria; often called a phage.
- CDC Bioterrorism Agents-Disease list : Add brief definition or description
- Cefaclor : A second generation cephalosporin antibiotic drug used to treat both Gram-positive and Gram-negative aerobic bacteria.
- Cefepime : Fourth-generation cephalosporin antibiotic typically reserved for severe infections.
- Colonoscopy : Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the luminal surface of the colon.
- DNA : A macromolecule — chemically, a nucleic acid — that stores genetic information.
- Farming with raw sewage : Use of human waste to fertilise and irrigate crops; particularly common where water is scarce.
- Fosfomycin : Broad-spectrum antibiotic and enolpyruvate transferase inhibitor produced by Streptomyces fradiae.
- Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor : Naturally occurring protein that stimulates the production of granulocytes and macrophages by stem cells and is used as a drug by some immunosuppressed individuals.
- Hamburger : A sandwich made with a bun containing a patty of ground, cooked meat that is almost always beef, usually served with condiments such as relish, mustard, or ketchup.
- Koch's postulates : A set of principles, first published in 1890, which have proved to be useful, even when used with techniques never imagined by Koch, to establish causality between an organism and an infectious disease
- Mammal : A warm-blooded animal with a backbone which also has hair, and produces milk to feed its young.
- Microbiology : The study of microorganisms (overlapping with areas of virology, bacteriology, mycology, and parasitology).
- Microorganism : A 'germ', an organism that is too small to be seen individually with the naked eye.
- Model organism : Species often used in research as models for the study of biological processes.
- Peritonitis : An inflammation of the peritoneum (the serous membrane which lines part of the abdominal cavity and some of the viscera it contains).
- Pseudomonas putida : Gram-negative,rod-shaped, saprotrophic soil bacterium which demonstrates a very diverse metabolism, including the ability to degrade organic solvents such as toluene, and is used in bioremediation.
- Quorum sensing : Ability of populations of bacteria to communicate and coordinate their behavior via inter-cellular and inter-species signaling molecules.
- RNA interference : Process that inhibits the flow of genetic information to protein synthesis.
- Transposons as a genetic tool : Semi-parasitic DNA sequences which can replicate and spread through the host's genome.
- U.S. intelligence analysis of patterns of infectious diseases and impacts : The United States intelligence community model for the spread and world impact of infectious disease
- Water : A chemical compound with one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms (H20). It is often in a liquid form and makes up the bulk of the oceans, lakes, rivers and living organisms.
