|Bacteria are the oldest living organism on Earth. Their 3.5 billion years sold fossils are found|
|Bacteria make largest biomass on Earth (half of total biomass) more than plants and animal (a single gram of Soil contains about 40 million bacterial cells; an mL of fresh water contains 1 million bacteria). They produce more oxygen on the other than all the plants.
|Bacteria found 10 times greater in numbers on Human body than own body cell (100 Trillion As compare to 10 Trillion Human Body Cells) collectively all these Bacteria weighs 4 pound. But fortunately most of them are harmless or even useful.|
|Our sweat is Odorless, the foul smell of sweat is due to Bacterial Normal flora on skin. They mingle with perspiration and produce Odor.|
|Bacteria adopt genetic change more rapidly which results in new disease and resistance to drugs. Due to this ability, Bacteria are greatly used in Genetic researches.|
|Bacteria are capable to store data. A gram of E. coli (a type of Bacteria) can store more data than a traditional 90 GB Hard disk drive.|
|Bacteria found on the places where life is not possible. These places including dead sea, Radio Active waste, Acidic Hot spring, and deep Earth Crust)|
|When not in a favorable condition, Bacteria cover itself in a highly resistance material to convert into spores to bare extreme condition. Some form of Bacterial spore can bare 500 0C temperature)|
|Bacteria have high growth rate. They reproduce by Binary Fission (a from of asexual reproduction ) and may reproduce from one cell into 1 million in just 4 hours(double in number each 10 to 20 minutes)|
|Bacteria can be engineered genetically to be useful for human being. They can synthesis useful substances (i.e. Insulin, Vitamins) or drugs (i.e. Antibiotics) for human being.|
