E. coliShape (form): circular Margin: entireElevation: raised Size: punctiform, smallTexture (surface): smoothAppearance: shinyPigmentation: nonpigmented (colorless)Optical property: translucentS. aureusShape (form): circular Margin: entireElevation: convexSize: moderate, largeTexture (surface): roughAppearance: shinyPigmentation: tan, golden yellowOptical property: opaqueFor all bacteria, they can be describedon the basis of these traits (how thebacteria look) when grown on a medium, poured and allowed to harden in a petri dish. Characteristics of bacterial coloniesbecome one of the type of signatures; keep in mind there are many ways that bacteria can be identified. This is just one of the ways that bacteria can be explored.
Here are how these particular bacteria are classified according to Bergy’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology.(Remember there are 3 Domains and 5 Kingdoms of Life.)E. coliDomain: BacteriaPhylum: ProteobacteriaClass: GammaproteobacteriaOrder: EnterobacterialesFamily: EnterobacteriacaeGenus:EscherichiaSpecies:coliS. aureusDomain: BacteriaPhylum: FirmicutesClass: BacilliOrder: BacillalesFamily: StaphylococcaceaeGenus:StaphylococcusSpecies:aureusTaken from Microbiology, An Introduction, 11th
