Mycoplasma — Language: Swedish. Parts: one, two, three. N.B. In 2018, the taxonomy of mollicutes (mycoplasmas) was revised. This video lecture was recorded in 2013 and therefore some of what is said about the taxonomy of the mollicutes is out of date and no longer correct. For example, most genus names have now been changed. Therefore, read the section on "The taxonomy of mollicutes (mycoplasmas)" in the term list on VetBact before you listen to these web lectures.

The revised taxonomy of the mollicutes (mycoplasmas)
About 2 years ago, the taxonomy of mycoplasmas was revised at VetBact, because a research group had proposed that 5 new genera should be included together with the genus Mycoplasma. This also had consequences for higher taxa within the phylum, which was then called Tenericutes. Now another group of researchers has suggested that the new names should be rejected.
