HIGH YIELD FACTS ON EACH BACTERIAL ORGANISM

Click on each of the organisms below to navigate to a page dedicated to the high yield facts that you should know about each organism, such as gram staining properties, diseases it causes, virulence factors and more (great for board studying). I will be constantly adding more facts as I continue through residency and doing more practice questions. If you have some factoids that you would like to contribute, please email me and I would be happy to add them.
