PHIL Image 12261

ID#:12261
Description:As a closer view of PHIL 12259, and a slightly-closer view of PHIL 12260, this photograph depicts the colonial morphology displayed by Gram-negative Yersinia pestis bacteria, which was grown on a medium of sheep’s blood agar (SBA), for a 72 hour time period, at a temperature of 37°C.

Classification:

Yersinia was formerly classified in the family Pasteurellaceae, but based on DNA- DNA hybridization similarities to Escherichia coli, the Yersinia group has been reclassified as members of the Enterobacteriaceae family (Farmer, 1995).
