1.11 Investigate Biological ideas relating to interactions Between humans and micro-organisms
BEFORE YOU LEARN ANYTHING ABOUT MIRCO-ORGANISMS, YOU NEED TO HAVE A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF CELLS AND ENZYMES
We are going to look at Bacteria and fungi in depth for this topic!
Bacteria are unicellular organisms (i.e. they are only made up of ONE cell) that are found in so many places - we don't actually realize the extent to which they live. There thousands found inside and on us!
Fungi, depending on the type, can be unicellular or multicellular. They are quite easy to see, for example mushrooms, mould and even yeast. We use yeast to make bread and ginger beer!
