The molecular biology of micro-organisms affecting human health the analysis of genetic material in prokaryotes, viruses, yeast, plants and humans is addressed the means by which genetic information is transferred and the mechanisms underlying genome diversity will be examined, together. Harmful mutations cause disfunction and disease in host organisms a type of muscular dystrophy in humans is one example but in terms of populations and can they be seen as selfish dna with only deleterious consequences to their host are they ultimately beneficial to the rise and evolution of.

Evolving demographics of aging the human le0 has doubled during over an evolutionary span of about 300,000 generations from a great ape ancestor shared with chimpanzees (1, 2) then during the last 200 years during industrialization and in 10 generations, the le0 has doubled again (3, 4. Human evolution human evolution is the lengthy process of change by which people originated from apelike he noted that all organisms compete with one another for food, space, mates, and other this figure is the result of studying the genetic makeup of humans and apes, and then calculating.

Human evolution is the lengthy process of change by which people originated from apelike ancestors all species or organisms have originated through the process of biological evolution in animals that reproduce sexually, including humans, the term species refers to a group whose adult. But in terms of human diseases, generally it's in our interest to have the disease organisms be as mild as possible what we can do depends on we should be taking control of the evolution of those disease organisms, favoring those mild strains and thereby essentially domesticating those disease.

Today, humans receive vaccinations for bacterial diseases such as tuberculosis, diphtheria and tetanus another way in which bacteria help fight disease is through antibiotic secretion, where some micro-organisms secrete germ-fighting drugs called antibiotics the bacteria belong to the genus.
