    Coccus (plural cocci) can be used to describe any bacterium that has a spherical shape. It is one of the three distinct types of bacteria shapes, the other two being bacillus (rod-shaped) and spirillum (spiral-shaped) cells

    hey im deciding between Laura Brahce’s micro or muma’s online/hybrid physio course….

      Hey, if you are taking it over summer then take physio with muma. But, make sure Brahce will be an option for fall, she doesnt always teach it. You have the best shot at an A if you take Brahce for micro. P.S. Muma is awesome, im her class right now.
