i was thinking about Salmonella typhi. Well, Salmonella enterica enterica typhi. Sorry, but that is the way i have been taught. And by a microbiology professor, too.
Anyway, that was the answer. So i guess alex wins, even if the question was wrong because my answer was wrong too.
@Patrick
your PhD was on Salmonella? What are the odds?!

Yes including molecules.
So the first question is: is it alive?
