Ways of Classifying organisms

The Linnaean binomial system of classifying animals brought organization from chaos; but recently, with the application of modern technology, new methods have surfaced that yield additional information. Methods of establishing ancestral kinship are helpful in establishing new taxonomic procedures that often relate species in new ways. Although no one method is…

Bacteria Identification Flow Chart

Bacterial flowcharts provide a visual aid to quick identification of bacterial species. To create a flowchart, identify the common characteristics of the different groups of bacteria first to exclude non-relevant groups, and to more efficiently determine the bacteria present. A variety of software have the geometric elements needed to deal with one group at a…

Scientific Classification Fungi

Naming and Classification of Fungi Introduction Although it is something that we give little thought to, the naming and classification of objects play an important role in society. Imagine the problems that we would have if we were not given names and if we did not name our cities, streets or pets. Now imagine if we did not classify the books that are in our…

Largest Classification Group

The inventor of modern scientific classification was Carolus Linnaeus (1707-1778) a Swedish botanist who classified and described more than 4, 400 species of animals and 7, 700 species of plants. There are billions of different kinds of living things (or organisms) on earth. To help study them, biologists have devised ways of naming and classifying them according…

Kingdom Monera - All the organisms of this kingdom are prokaryotes. Complex structure was the basis of classification of organisms, many centuries ago. According to R.H. Whittaker s five kingdom classification all the bacteria were placed under the Kingdom Monera. Monera are considered as the most primitive group of organisms. They include various types of bacteria…

2. Enriched medium (Added growth factors): Addition of extra nutrients in the form of blood, serum, egg yolk etc, to basal medium makes them enriched media. Enriched media are used to grow nutritionally exacting (fastidious) bacteria. Blood agar, chocolate agar, Loeffler’s serum slope etc are few of the enriched media. Blood agar is prepared by adding 5-10% (by…

GMO Classification

With the development of new plant breeding techniques, the European plant breeding sector is tackling the world’s crucial challenge of feeding the 21st-century world. New plant breeding techniques allow for much faster and more precise results than traditional plant breeding techniques, and allow for more food to be produced with fewer inputs. However, the novel…

Immobilised metal affinity chromatography (IMAC) is the most widely used technique for single-step purification of recombinant proteins. However, despite its use in the purification of heterologue proteins in the eubacteria Escherichia coli for decades, the presence of native E. coli proteins that exhibit a high affinity for divalent cations such as nickel, cobalt…

Classification of Living Things & Naming [edit] In science, the practice of classifying organisms is called taxonomy (Taxis means arrangement and nomos means method). The modern taxonomic system was developed by the Swedish botanist Carolus (Carl) Linneaeus (1707-1778). He used simple physical characteristics of organisms to identify and differentiate…
