Taught by Professor Barry C. Fox | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Start your study of the basic elements of germ theory with bacteria. Once you’ve inspected the anatomy of a bacterium cell and its function, explore how bacteria can cause disease and how they can adapt to make themselves elusive to your immune system. Then, investigate three diseases caused by bacteria: diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus.
