One of the most fundamental questions that a microbiologist might ask about a bacterium is whether or not it is
alive.When the presence of a pathogen is suspected, as in the case of biological terrorism, the agent’s viability is
of great importance given the harmful effects that a viable organism may cause to any exposed individuals.
