Many prokaryotic cells can also transfer genes to or accept genes from neighboring cells, either of the same species or of a different species, in the process of genetic exchange. 3) is the process of descent with modification in which genetic variants (mutants) are selected based on their reproductive fitness. Although we learn from elementary biology that evolution is a very slow process, evolution in microbial cells can be very rapid when selective pressure is strong. For example, witness today how genes encoding antibiotic resistance in pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria have been selected and widely distributed by the indiscriminate use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine.
20); in microbiology we say that such a culture is pure. To accomplish this important goal, Koch and his associates developed several simple but ingenious methods of obtaining and growing bacteria in pure culture, and many of these methods are still used today. Koch started by using natural surfaces such as a potato slice to obtain pure cultures, but quickly developed more reliable and reproducible growth media employing liquid nutrient solutions solidified with gelatin, and later with agar, an algal polysaccharide with excellent properties for this purpose.
In the past 150 years or so, microbiology has moved forward in a way unprecedented by any other biological science and has spawned several new fields in modern biology. We retrace some highlights in the history of microbiology now and describe a few of the major contributors. 6 The Discovery of Microorganisms Although the existence of creatures too small to be seen with the naked eye had been suspected for centuries, their discovery had to await invention of the microscope. The English mathematician and natural historian Robert Hooke (1635–1703) was an excellent microscopist.
