Build the Baddest Bug

Knowing what you now know about the five steps of infection, build the baddest bug that will allow them to do ALL of the following, and give an example of each:

  1. Enter the host
  2. Adhere to host tissues
  3. Invade tissues and obtain nutrients
  4. Replicate while warding off immune defenses
  5. Transmit to a new host
  • Give your baddest bug a name with a Genus and species (don’t forget to italicize!)
  • Draw a picture and label each of the virulence factors above
