multicellular animals

15

Protozoa

unicellular, complex cell structure lacking a cell wall

16

Viruses

Not composed of cells

17

biological control of pest

Microorganism that kill insects can be effective biological control agents because they are specific for the pest and do not persist in the environment

18

recycling of elements

Carbon, oxygen, nitrogen etc are required for all living organisms. Microorganism covert these elements into forms that are useful for other organisms.Many bacteria decompose material and release carbon dioxide into atmosphere

19

normal microbiota

microorganisms that are found in and on human body.

20

sewage treatment

organic matter in sewage is decomposed by bacteria into carbon dioxide,nitrates, phosphates, sulfate.

21

human insulin production

Recombinant DNA technique have resulted in insertion of the gene of insulin

22

Vaccine production

Some microbes can be genetically modified to produce componets of vaccines

23

Biofilms

are aggregated bacteria adhering to each other and to a solid surface
