Escherichia coli, commonly referred to as E. coli, is a bacteria found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. While some strains are benign, others may cause serious food poisoning in humans. Virulent strains of E. coli can cause gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections, or neonatal meningitis, as well as a host of other rarer conditions. E. coli has become very important in research due to its ability to be easily manipulated. Recombinant proteins may be produced using E. coli. Since the first application of recombinant DNA technology, E. coli has been used to produce human insulin, vaccines, immobilized enzymes, and more.
