Candida albicans
is the most common fungal pathogen of humans and has developed an extensive repertoire of putative virulence mechanisms that allows successful colonization and infection of the host under suitable predisposing conditions [1]
Clostridium botulinum
Bacteria can enter an open wound from contaminated water sources. Can enter the gastrointestinal tract by consuming contaminated drinking water or (more commonly) food
Coliform Bacteria
live in soil or vegetation and in the gastrointestinal tract of animals. Coliforms enter water supplies from the direct disposal of waste into streams or lakes, or from runoff from wooded areas, pastures, feedlots, septic tanks, and sewage plants into streams or groundwater. ( includes strains such as E. coli. They are ubiquitous in nature, and many types are harmless.

Cryptosporidium parvum 
a protozoan parasite that causes cryptosporidiosis, which has gained notoriety in the past five years. In 1993, over 400,000 people in Milwaukee, Wisconsin became ill with it after drinking contaminated water (
Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
virus that causes eye infections. Aciclovir is not effective as CMV does not encode a viral thymidine kinase.

Enterococcus faecalis
Enterococcus gallinarum 
Enterococcus casseliflavus 

can cause diarrhoea, viral menigitis, conjunctivitis, encephilitis

Escherichia coli
Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms). Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in humans

300 genes
include polio, hepititus A, foot and mouth disease. They are among the smallest of the animal RNA viruses
first human virus to be characterized
Pseudomonas aeruginosa
colonizations occur in critical body organs, such as the lungs, the urinary tract, and kidneys, the results can be fatal. It is found in soil, water, skin flora. also in hypoxic atmospheres, and has, thus, colonized many natural and artificial environments
