Spirilla

Post by MiddleSchoolStudent » Wed Jun 15, 2005 12:29 am

Hi. My name is Amanda, and I am a middle school student searching for help on the subject, Spirilla. I need to know examples, diseases, and the locations of this bacteria. It is nearing the end of school, and my science teacher is throwing this at us. If it's not asking too much, I need a reply back soon. :)


Thanks so much,

~ Amanda ~

From what I know syphilis is caused by a bacteria called Troponema palidum-spirilla and cholera is caused by Vibrio cholera- vibrion
