We are doing pet microbes in
college and my pet is a bacteria. The name of it is Sarcinia aurantiaca.
I was looking for any information about this bacteria. thank you
Great idea to have a pet microbe and do research on
it, but how on earth did you pick yours? I could only
find the name in one Russian publication (my russian
isn't too good) and the name Sarcina aurantiaca in a
few publications from the 70's. The organism must have
switched names since then, and I can't find it in my
lists right now. What made yo choose this one? Do you
know anything about it? Do you have the option to
choose another? You might want to browse around in the
Virtual Museum of Bacteria, www.bacteriamuseum.org
Come back to me if you need to know more.
