Campylobacter jejuni

Hola. I'm C. jejuni.
I am a curved Gram Negative rod.

You can find me in lots of domestic animals.
I am part of the normal bacterial flora of poultry and cattle.
I get into people through dirty drinking water or undercooked meat, especialy chicken.
I cause food poisoning, with a self limiting bloody diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and fever.

Might I suggest Mycobacterium avium?

Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) is the most common disseminated bacterial disease in patients infected by the human immunodeficiency virus.

I just found your site through BoingBoing, and I think it is awesome! Have you ever thought about making this into a book? I suggest Lulu.com--you could even enter it into the Lulu Blooker Prize!

greetings from San Francisco, CA... I love this site. Great pictures and useful info. Definitely a great book in the making! Never to early to get the kids into microbio.

So sweet, do you do the illustrations yourself? Good job lady.

Jane said...

You are awesome! ^_^ I hope to see lots more adoptable microbes on this blog. And I agree about the book comment... you should totally publish. You might not even need to self-publish, this looks like a terrific commercial kids book to me.

They're cuter than the little stuffed microbes you can buy!

Great pictures! I found you through Boing Boing and I'm going to feature your great pictures on my medically related blog.

I should be studing for the boards right now, but I think I'll just learn what I need to know from your site.

haha, I'm a biology student at UPenn. This site is so funny. I love it! Two thumbs up! I'm actually thinking of doing something similar for genetic diseases. ;)

Not sure the kids would love reading about scary bacterial and the Plague, though.

Wow this realy is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Always thought I was the only one with the love for the little critters.
Might I suggest Legionella Pneumophilla?
Please keep up the good work.

Hey - what about the Guillain Barre connection for this guy?

I dont want that one!

Dear Campylobacter jejuni,

thanks for your visit. It was surely fun to hang out together. I'm a bit exhausted now, as I'm always after meeting you. It makes me think that maybe it's better if you don't see me again before my ass stops hurting.

Do you can write anything else about it? Great article!
