Transcript of Salmonella

Salmonella is a very simple, rod shaped organism. To asexually reproduce, salmonella makes copies itself with cell division.
Number of Parents
Each salmonella cell has one parent, which is called the Parent Cell, and the new cell is called the Daughter Cell, even though salmonella has no gender.
Salmonella reproducts by dividing into two different cells, then leaves the daughter cell because it is a copy of the parent cell, so it knows already how to reproduce and keep the species going and going. Salmonella uses Mieosis to reproduce.
Parental Care
Unlike many sexual reproducers, asexual reproducers don't need much, if any at all, parental care. The reason for this is that the parent cell provides all the care a daughter cell needs before the daughter cell is released. Usually with asexual organisms, they seem to want to produce as many offspring as possible.
Genetic Variation
Salmonella is not genetically different than the parent cell at all. Salmonella copies itself into offspring over and over, all of the salmonella cells are genetically the same.
