Other Decks By This User
- All genetic material in a cell
- Molecular Study of genomes
- Genes of an organism
- Expression of the genes
- Study of what genes are,how they carry info, how info is expressed,and how genes are replicated
- Segment of DNA that encoes a functional product, usually a protein
- The use of microorganisms,cells, or cell components to make a product
- Recombinant DNA Technology
- Insertion or modification of genes to produce desired proteins
- Used because easy to grow and genomics are known
- The dissolution or destruction of cells, such as blood cells or bacteria
- A change in genetic material caused by chemicals and radiation
- RNA to ...
- Composed of one or more chains of amino acids.
- Easily treated, no nucleus
- Hard to treat, has nucleus. Human fungi
- Use oxygen
- Systemic Mycoses
- Deep within body
- Subcutaneous Mycoses
- Beneath skin
- Cutaneous Mycoses
- Of skin;affects hair, skin,nails
Ex: ringworms, athlete's foot
- Opportunistic Mycoses
- Caused by normal fungal microbiotathat are usually harmless
- The existence among animals of the same species of two distinct forms that differ in one or more characteristics, such as coloration, size, or shape.
- A disease that can affect respiration
- Systemic disease
- Unicellular eukaryotes that produce cysts
- Very small; cannot replicate without infecting host. Contain DNA or RNA and a protein. Some are enclosed by a membrane envelope.
- Cytopathic Effects
- Visible effects of virus infection (microscopic lvl)
- Serological Tests
- Detect antibodies against viruses in a pt
- Neucleic Acids
- Viral ID
- An asexual reproductive structure, as in yeast or a hydra, that consists of an outgrowth capable of developing into a new individual.
- Latent Viral Infections
- Virus remains in asymptomatic host cell for long periods
coldsores, chicken pox
- Persistent Viral Infections
- Disease processes occurs over a long period of time.
Ex: HIV, Rubella
