 +====== Bacterial infection ======
 +
 +(1) (Science: microbiology) [[bacteria]] are group of micro-[[organism]]s that are a single [[cell]] approximately 1 micron in transverse diameter. Some bacteria cause [[disease]] in man, requiring treatment with an [[antibiotic]].

 +===== Bacteria =====
 +
 +Five major groups of microorganisms are responsible for the majority of [[infection]]s. They include protozoa and helminths, or worms—both of which are considered in Parasites and Parasitology—as well as bacteria and viruses.
 +
 +Bacteria are very small organisms, typically consisting of one cell. They are prokaryotes,​ a term referring to a type of cell that has no nucleus. In eukaryotic cells, such as those of plants and animals, the nucleus controls the cell's functions and contains its [[gene]]s. Genes carry deoxyribonucleic acid ([[DNA]]), which determines the characteristics that are passed on from one generation to the next. The genetic material of bacteria is contained instead within a single, circular chain of DNA.
