It is often used in the selective identification of enteric bacteria including Salmonella and Shigella. The TSI agar has glucose, lactose and sucrose as the sources of carbohydrates. Phenol red is the acid base indicator incorporated in the medium. The TSI medium indicates whether the bacteria ferments glucose only, or lactose and sucrose with or without production of gas. Nitrate serves as a source of nitrogen for many bacteria.
Introduction What Is Diazotroph? Diazotrophs are bacteria and archaea that fix atmospheric nitrogen gas into a more usable form such as ammonia. A diazotroph is an organism that is able to grow without external sources of fixed nitrogen. Examples of organisms that do this are rhizobia and Frankia (in symbiosis) and Azospirillum. Types Of Diazotroph?
6. POLYESTERAMIDES Introduction: -Structure of Polyesteramides- Polyesteramides are group of biodegradable polymer that covers both specialties in the biomedical field and commodity applications. These polymers have amide and ester groups on their chemical structure which give good thermal and mechanical properties. Polyesteramides are polymers with hydrolysable backbones which able to biodegrade under particular conditions. Strong hydrogen bonding interactions between amide groups back up some typical weakness of aliphatic polyester.
There are many different substances available or added to the soil that can assist in plant growth. The main elements needed for plant growth are Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen which the plant gets from the air and water. There are other macronutrients which include Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium which the plant either gets from decaying organic material or fertilizer.There are other minor nutrients a plant needs for growth such as Sulfur Calcium, Magnesium, Copper, and Iron. These elements are found naturally occurring or are added to fertilizer. People throughout history have used fertilizer to improve plant growth beginning with Native Americans who added a dead fish to plants coming to today where we use either chemical or organic fertilizers.
coli were seen. The bacterial cells’ ability to survive the ampicillin in the medium was a result of their transformation. As mentioned previously, the pGLO plasmid contained the beta-lactamase enzyme which is needed for antibiotic resistance. Since the E. coli on this plate underwent the transformation, they were able to uptake the beta-lactamase enzyme thereby making the bacterial cells ampicillin resistant. As well as being able to successfully grow and reproduce, the E. coli in the LB/amp/ara +pGLO plate also emitted a fluorescent glow when exposed to UV light.

2.3 BACILLUS SPECIES The bacillus genus comprises of gram-positive aerobic or facultative anaerobic endospore-forming rod-shaped bacteria that includes both mesophiles and extremophiles (Priest, 1993). Bacillus species are ubiquitous and environmentally diverse, they include thermophilic, psychrophilic, acidophilic, alkalophilic and halophilic bacteria. The bacteria produce spores under unfavourable environmental conditions. Spores produced are resistant to heat, drying, disinfectants and other destructive agents thus remain viable for long periods (Nicholson, Munakata, Horneck, Melosh, & Setlow, 2000). Spores may be oval or cylindrical in shape and may be located centrally, sub terminally or terminally.
The process is a fermentative one meaning it can occur in the absence or presence of oxygen. Many compounds are from during the alcohol fermentation since many reactions occurs during the process. A good example is when acetic acid and ethanol combine to form ethyl. The compound with a very high acid is acetic acid it can be isolated from other bacteria by means of gram stain and can also be tested biochemically (Cleenwerck,
Another method is chemical sorption of CO2power plants. Plants can naturally capture the carbon dioxide and use it for photosynthesis by biological fixation. Terrestrial plants capture more amount of carbon dioxide but the actual atmospheric carbon dioxide is just 0.036%, so it is not economical valuable method. Another alternative Biological method is CO2 sequestration by using algae. It has some advantages over physical methods of sequestration.
In those researches they did surveys, in places like Mexico and Washington’s coast and under the oceans, and saw that due to bacteria’s adaptably their biomass may exceed that of life in oceans. Bacteria also prospers by creating a symbiotic relationship with other plans, like the plants which enable them to convert atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia. Symbiotic bacteria also play a significant role in producing vitamins and breaking down food that contains
