Microbiology SC2730
Unit 5 Assignment 1: Taxonomy-Create Your
Own Microbe
Amanda Arceo, Instructor

The microbe HDZA began as a lab


experiment with human DNA and E. coli
UMN026. As the zombie apocalypse began
to plague the southern region, researchers
were struggling to find an anti-virus for
those affected before it spread worldwide
and mankind became extinguished.

Taxonomy-HDZA

Certain bacteria cell structures taken from


infected human DNA such as the
Escherichia coli strain E. coli UMN026
(O17:K52:H18 extracellular pathogenic)
and manipulated with salicylic acid formed
the HDZA microbe.

Taxonomy-HDZA

The discovery of the HDZA microbe was


purely accidental.
Simian Shaw is a researcher and chemist at
Micros R US. He is the lead chemist in charge
of studying the zombie plague and finding an
antivirus. Simian is a single/widowed father
and his 14 year old daughter Faith comes in
once a week to assist him in making acne
treatment for her.

Taxonomy-HDZA

While Simian Shaw was looking at the E. coli


UMN026 and zombie infected human DNA
under the microscope, Faith came into the lab
and tripped over a cord causing the salicylic
acid she was carrying to spill everywhere.
Once Simian saw that the salicylic acid got on
the specimen under his microscope he was
discouraged and was going to dispose of it
but Faith urged him no to.

Taxonomy-HDZA

The next day Simian returned to the lab to


find that not only did the salicylic acid bond
with the infected DNA, but it started a
reversal process that returned the DNA to
its original stasis.

Taxonomy-HDZA

Simian, excited but not knowing what to


think took out another infected specimen
and placed three drops of salicylic acid on it.
While looking under the microscope he sees
how with the help of salicylic acid the E. coli
UMN026 is eradicating the infection. This
new microbe is the antivirus for the zombie
apocalypse, which is why Simian named it
HDZA (human DNA zombie apocalypse)

Taxonomy-HDZA

The antivirus HDZA will cure anyone whos


been bitten by a zombie within an 8 hour
time frame because at the ninth hour the
infected will start to turn into a zombie,
therefore the HDZA will have no affect.
It is not recommended for a non-infected
person to be administered the HDZA
antivirus as it will have no affect on their
molecular levels.
