Echinococcosis is a parasitic disease of tapeworms of the Echinococcus type.
An endospore is a dormant, tough, and non-reproductive structure produced by certain bacteria from the Firmicute phylum.
Eukaryotes are organisms whose cells have a nucleus enclosed within membranes, unlike Prokaryotes (Bacteria and other Archaea).
Gordonia is a genus of bacterium in the Actinobacteria, the same lineage that includes Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Gram stain or Gram staining, also called Gram's method, is a method of staining used to distinguish and classify bacterial species into two large groups (gram-positive and gram-negative).
The Kinyoun method, or Kinyoun stain, is an acid-fast procedure used to stain any species of the genus Mycobacterium, Nocardia and Cryptosporidium species.
