The bacterial cell is generally single cellular micro organism that spread easily around us and infect host cell. In this review we discuss about the types and nutrient requirements for growth and spreading of bacteria. The bacteria are various types like as Phototrophs, Autotrophs, Psychrophiles, Mycoplasma etc.
