Learning Goal: I’m working on a microbiology presentation and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Select a disease that affects humans or animals whose causative agent is a bacterium, virus, fungus, protozoa, or other microorganism and make a powerpoint presentation.
Create a presentation on your chosen disease in which you report on each of the following in detail:
Causative Agent: Describe and classify the microbe involved. If known, explain how the microbe causes/transmits the disease or interferes with normal body function. Also, describe the vector and/or life cycle for the microbe (if applicable).
Population(s) affected: What population(s) is/are at highest risk of contracting the disease? Are there any groups of people who should be tested? Please include statistical/geographical data and trends (from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, or other source [http://www.cdc.gov (Links to an external site.), http://www.who.int (Links to an external site.), etc.]).
Course of Disease: What are the usual signs/symptoms of someone with the disease? How is the disease diagnosed? What is the usual time course for recovery? Are there complications and/or long-term effects?
Interventions: Describe possible treatments and/or medical interventions. Is there a vaccine available? How can the disease be best prevented or kept under control?

Innate Immunity.

For this assignment we are back to the Concept maps.
For thist Map your topic is Innate Immunity. After reviewing the Video and powerpoints describing innate immunity, please build a map or web showing the connection of the different parts and molecules of innate immunity in the defense and resolution of a microbial infection. Please make sure to include and expand on the following:
physical structures
cells
molecules
substances
pathways
organs
activities
Make sure you limit yourself only to addressing Innate Immunity and not Specific/Adaptive immune cells.
I will be looking for the how you interconnect all of the different components you mention.
Just as a reminder, I have included our concept map figure from the first module.
