The disease causing agents for salmonella infections are zoonotic. Zoonotic means that this infectious disease can be transferred between humans and animals. Bacteria are organisms made up of one cell that are capable of multiplying and dividing by themselves. Bacteria exist everywhere; where some can cause diseases, others are harmful, and some are even helpful. The salmonella bacteria are placed in a class called gammaproteobacteria. Gammaproteobacteria is a gram-negative bacteria that does not retain the crystal violet dye when washed in a decolorizing solution. Doing this is called a gram strain test, and it will determine whether the bacteria are present or not. There are an exceeding number of important pathogens that belong to this class, including: salmonella, yersinia, vibrio, pseudomonas aeruginosa, and klebsiella pneumonia. Salmonella is an infectious agent transmitted through food or water. There is more than one way someone or some animal can get infected with this horrible bacteria.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
