Escherichia coli (E. coli) is about 2 micrometers (μm) long and 0.5 μm in diameter, with a cell volume of between 0.6 and 0.7 μm3. In other words, crazy small! There are 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) micrometers in 1 meter.
Answer: E-coli is a naturally occurring bacteria. There is no "cause" of e-coli bacteria; however, mutant e-coli can be ingested through the diet by consuming under cooked meat or poor hygiene practices (handling meat, cows, etc.)
Answer: E. Coli is the name of a particular type of bacteria. You have E. Coli in your large intestine. Various strains of E. Coli exist. Some of them can make people sick. E. Coli in food can make people sick. Cows have a different type of E. Coli from people. Slaughterhouses can mix E. Coli from cows into hamburger. That has killed people. E. Coli from cattle pastures has washed into farms that grew crops for people. The E. Coli has gotten into food that people eat. In the Great Lakes region, E. Coli from raw sewage has gotten into drinking water. That has made people sick.
Answer: No. Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a bacterial species. Bacteria differ from eukaryotes (such as animals, plants, and fungi) in that the chromosome is not surrounded by a membrane. In eukaryotes the nuclear membrane surrounds the DNA thus creating a compartment in the cell known as the nucleus.
Answer: E. Coli does not reproduce by binary fission. It reproduces by conjugation, in which genetic material is exchanged between two cells. This process is not common in bacteria but some intestinal bacteria, E. coli for example, split by conjugation.
Answer: Do you mean have E. coli food poisoning or having E. coli in your organism? Everyone has E. coli in their intestines and it makes up a large proportion in your faeces. However, food contaminated with E. coli indicates faecal contamination which can cause food poisoning that would have such symptoms as diarrhea and abdominal pain. These poisonings are fatal very rarely.
Answer: Ans: A species of bacterium normally present in intestinal tract of humans and other animals; sometimes pathogenic; can be a threat to food safety.E.coli is a common type of bacteria that can make you pretty sick.
