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 This video lecture was recorded in 2013 and therefore some of what is said about the taxonomy of the mollicutes is out of date and no longer correct.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.

New names of taxa within the classification category phylum
During October 2021, an article was published by A. Oren och G.M. Garrity, in which new names are proposed for a number of taxa within the classification category phylum. This has resulted in many discussions in social media about whether it was really necessary to make these changes, which have created confusion among microbiologists and other professionals who come into contact with bacteriology.
