Biology Question Bank for Entrance Exams

For AIPMT Main other Medical Entrance Exam Prepration, Question Bank for Biology Microbes and Human Welfare is given below.

Virus, bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoan are microscopic in size hence known as microbes or microorganism. This are harmful as well as useful to human being. They are found in all types of habitates. They are exploited in different fields by modern technology. Bacteria and fungi are used in making household products such as curd, dosa and idli, bread, beverages etc. Different types of pharmacuitcal products are the result of reaction done by microbes. They produces antibodies, carbonicoied, alcohol, enzymes, protien, steroids etc. Microbes are important in fuel energy production. Sewage treatment plants and bilogas plants are possible due to such of microbes only. Biogas is mixture of methane, co2, and which are used in fuel energy. Bacteria, fungi, algae, virus are used in biocontrol and biofertilisers in agriculture.We should use such chemical instead of synthetic artificial chemical in our life cycle.
