Question description

Background:

Evolution occurs in all living organisms from the smallest bacterial cells to the most complex animals. In bacterial cells evolution occurs rapidly in response to environmental pressures due to their simple genome and rapid reproduction rates. In this assignment you will explore the evolution in bacterial cells in relation to the development of resistance to antibiotic drugs.

Choose a bacterium that has become resistant to multiple antibiotics. Consult the resources for additional information.

Create a 10-15 slide power point presentation (with detailed speaker notes) wherein you address the following points:

  1. Give a brief overview of the chosen bacterium including the genus and species. What disease(s) does the bacterium cause in humans?
  2. Briefly explain how the bacterium has evolved to become resistant to antibiotics.
  3. How is natural selection involved in the development of antibiotic resistance in bacteria?
  4. How do antibiotics reduce bacterial biodiversity?
  5. Given what you have learned, how do you think the medical community should address the problem of antibiotic resistance?

Include:

Appropriate pictures with citations. Include academic references in APA format
