Wanted: Disease-causing Bacteria
Due Date
1. Choose ONE bacterium from the list to do research on.
2. Conduct research to find the following information on your bacterium:
a) Mug Shot (electron micrograph or microscopic picture/diagram)
b) Identifying characteristics (structure/shape)
c) Organism's M.O. (police jargon for how the organism attacks and spreads)
d) Hideout of the culprit (where it is most likely to be found)
e) Why/how is it considered “armed and dangerous”? (Most common injury/injuries done to victim)
f) Most common victims and number of victims
g) Most effective weapons against the germ
3. Create a “WANTED” poster (just like in the Wild West) for your bacterium on an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper.
The poster should include the information from your research and should be creatively written/displayed.
4. Cite your sources using MLA format on the back of your paper. You must have at least two sources. Refer
to your Spain Park student agenda for information on writing MLA citations.
Bacillus anthracis - anthrax; Bordetella pertussis -whooping cough; Clostridium botulinum - botulism;
Clostridium perfringens - gas gangrene; Clostridium tetani -tetanus; Corynebacterium diphtheria- diphtheria;
Escherichia coli -acute pyelonephritis; Francisella tularensis -tularemia or rabbit fever; Hemophilus influenzae -meningitis;
Lactobacillus acidophilus -cavities; Mycobacterium leprae -leprosy (Hansen's disease); Mycobacterium tuberculosis -tuberculosis;
Neisseria gonorrhoeae -gonorrhoea; Neisseria meningitidis -spinal menigitis; Rickettsia richettsii -Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever;
Rickettsia prowazekii -typhus; Salmonella typhi -typhoid fever ; Salmonella typhimurium -food poisoning;
Shigella dysenteriae -dysentery; Streptococcus mutans -cavities; Streptococcus pneumoniae -pneumonia;
Streptococcus (group A) -scarlet fever; Streptococcus (group A) -rheumatic fever; Treponema pallidum -syphilis;
Treponema pertenue -yaws; Vibrio cholerae -cholera; Yersinia pestis –plague
