Answer the following questions
Microbes grow under optimal conditions of pH, temperature, and nutrients depending on the species’ metabolic requirements and adaptive responses. Some species have very strict and narrow growth conditions whereas others can grow in a wider range of stringency.
For this discussion assignment, select a fungal, helminth, or parasitic species of your choice and prepare an initial post describing the optimal growth conditions, location, and unique characteristics which helps the microbe adapt to this niche. Include images if possible.
Is there any therapeutic application for this microbe in healthcare?
Sterilization and Disinfection

For this discussion assignment, select a antimicrobial agent of your choice and describe the target microbe(s), the mechanism of action, side effects, and treatment regimen.
