Bacterial infections: Another name for Bacterial diseases.
Bacterial infections (condition): Any condition caused by bacteria.
Bacterial infections (condition): Bacteria are single-celled creatures with tiny flagella. Bacteria are alive. They are very small organisms, often only a single cell. Bacteria need to get energy, and may emit toxins or waste products. By comparison, viruses are much smaller, and are not exactly "alive" in the normal sense.
Bacterial infections: Microbes belonging to the bacteria group
are made up of only one cell. Under a microscope,
bacteria look like balls, rods, or spirals. Bacteria are so small that a
line of 1,000 could fit across the eraser of a pencil. Life in any form on
Earth could not exist without these tiny cells.
