I would just like to have a list brought up of gram neg.
and gram pos. bacteria, names of bacteria and what category they fall under.
Such as Staphylococcus aureus is gram positive. This would be very
helpful in my MBIO LAB. Thank you, student at NSU, central Louisiana.
Your best bet would be to start with looking in the backs of microbiology text
books. Many of them have an index with this information. The internet may
Gram positive: Staphylococcus sp., Streptococcus sp., Bacillus sp.,
Cornyebacterium sp., Clostridium sp.
Gram negative: E coli, Pseudomonas sp., Proteus sp., Enterobacter sp.,
Klebsiella sp., Serratia sp., Citrobacter sp.
these are some of the more common genus names-any organism with these names
will apply ie. if you have Staphylococcus aureus or Staph. epidermidis, they
are both gram pos.
there are many others-for a complete list consult a text book of microbiology
