Single organism less than 10,000 isolated. These organisms common on external and internal genitalia considered colonizers. No further testing. Neg?

Negative.: This is generally considered colonization or contamination (would need full report), unless there are very specific organisms are present. Treatment is not recommended, because the side effects of the antibiotics could outweigh the risk of treating colonization or contamination. Also, excessive antibiotic use could lead to antibiotic resistance in the future, should you get an infection.

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

An early human embryo looks very much like our amphibian and then dinosaur (well, chicken, which is really the same thing) ancestors, and then many early structures wither and die, being replaced by more advanced species.
