Better referred to as C.

‘Not merely is [the antibiotic] virtually useless against this organism, but resistance seem to have been a significant element in the continued development and persistence of the strains in hospitals and scientific settings.’ Fortunately, the expense of sequencing the entire genome of a bacterium has fallen. Which will make it much easier for future researchers to monitor the pass on of diseases even as outbreaks are happening, to get a better understanding of the disease and how exactly to stop it. Recently, some doctors have started treating C. Diff infections in a fairly unique fashion – fecal transplants. The transplants come from healthy people to those who are contaminated with the extremely tough condition to take care of Clostridium difficile bacterias, which causes severe, watery diarrhea.
