Bacteria

A bacillus (plural bacilli) or bacilliform bacterium is a rod-shaped bacterium or archaeon.
Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria have a number of shapes, ranging from spheres to rods and spirals.

Escherichia coli

E. coliE.coliE-coli
MacConkey agar can be used to distinguish among Gram negative bacilli such as E. coli and salmonella.
coli', is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped, coliform bacterium of the genus Escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms).

Salmonella

Salmonella poisoningSalmonella typhibacteremic salmonellosis
MacConkey agar can be used to distinguish among Gram negative bacilli such as E. coli and salmonella.
Salmonella is a genus of rod-shaped (bacillus) Gram-negative bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae.

MacConkey agar

MacConkey's agarMAC agarMacConkey lactose media
MacConkey agar can be used to distinguish among Gram negative bacilli such as E. coli and salmonella.
MacConkey agar is an indicator, a selective and differential culture medium for bacteria designed to selectively isolate Gram-negative and enteric (normally found in the intestinal tract) bacilli and differentiate them based on lactose fermentation.

Bacilli

The name Bacilli, capitalized but not italicized, can also refer to a less specific taxonomic group of bacteria that includes two orders, one of which contains the genus Bacillus.
The word "bacillus" (or its plural "bacilli", with a small b) is also a generic term to describe the morphology of any rod-shaped bacterium.

Gram stain

Gram stainingGram-variableGram
There is no connection between the shape of a bacterium and its color in the Gram staining.
He published his method in 1884, and included in his short report the observation that the typhus bacillus did not retain the stain.

Clostridium

Clostridialclostridiaclostria
The normal, reproducing cells of Clostridium, called the vegetative form, are rod-shaped, which gives them their name, from the Greek κλωστήρ or spindle.

Actinomyces

ActinomoycesActinomyces bovisActinomyces spp.
Actinomyces species may form endospores, and, while individual bacteria are rod-shaped, Actinomyces colonies form fungus-like branched networks of hyphae.

Corynebacterium

CorynebacteriaceaecorynebacteriaDiphtheroids
They are bacilli (rod-shaped), and in some phases of life they are, more particularly, club-shaped, which inspired the genus name (coryneform means "club-shaped").

Listeria

Antilisterialmeningitis, listerialisteria infections
Listeria species are Gram-positive, rod-shaped, and facultatively anaerobic, and do not produce endospores.

Bacteroides

Bacteroides vulgatusB. vulgatusbacteroid
Bacteroides species are non endospore-forming bacilli, and may be either motile or nonmotile, depending on the species.

Enterobacter

Enterobacter bugandensisAerobacterEnterobacter gergoviae
Enterobacter is a genus of common Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae.

Pseudomonas

Shigella

Shigella species.Shigella typhi
Shigella is a genus of bacteria that is Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, non-spore-forming, nonmotile, rod-shaped and genetically closely related to E. coli.
