Escherichia coli. This organism is typically present in the lower intestine of humans, where it is the dominant facultative anaerobe present, but it is only one minor constituent of the complete intestinal microflora. E.coli is easily grown in a laboratory setting and is readily amenable to genetic manipulation making it one of the most More...
