In clinical microbiology laboratories, before the invention of technological advances traditional methods like culture, phenotypic, and biochemical tests were used to recognize the presence of microorganisms in clinical specimens. Identification tests like nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) and analyte-specific reagents (ASRs) considered as more difficult, majorly these tests requires fully skilled persons. To avoid these problems new techniques like next-generation sequencing (NGS), Digital PCR were developed. Along with these techniques Matrix assisted laser desorption ionisation time of Mass spectroscopy (MALDI of MS) was invented which is useful for rapid and accurate identification of these cultured microorganisms.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) can be denoted as the ability of a microbe to resist the effects of medication which was successfully treat that microbe once. The term antibiotic resistance (ABR) is a part of AMR, as it is applies only to bacteria. These bacteria becoming impervious to antibiotics. Impervious microbes are more difficult to treat and require alternative medications or higher doses of antimicrobials. This towards may be more expensive or more toxic or both. If microbes resistant to multiple antimicrobials, those are called as multi drug resistant (MDR). Along with bacteria, fungi develop antifungal resistance (AFR), viruses develop antiviral resistance (AVR), protozoa develop antiprotozoal resistance (APR). Major preventive method to avoid the antimicrobial resistance is using of antimicrobials when needed there by decreasing unnecessary usage of antimicrobials.

It is a combined genetic material of the microorganisms, which is living in and on all the vertebrates. The human microbiome has approximately 100 trillion microbes, which live in our gut. The host genome is relatively constant; on the other side the microbiome is vigorous and changes with rapid development. This changes mostly occurs in infancy and early childhood. The relationship between changes in microbiome composition and disease pathological process is undetermined. The main challenge is to recognize whether microbial imbalance is related to disease and to able to distinguish between cause and effect.

Pathogens or infectious agents develop gradually by using this bipartite mechanism. In this metabolism host supplies their nutrients to pathogens there by the acidity of pathogens is increased gradually. The host acts as a nutrient medium or slot for pathogens, because of this nature of host lifespan of the host cell will be reduced. Many intracellular pathogens like Legionella pneumophila, Coxiella burnetii and Listeria monocytogenes have developed bipartite metabolism in their hosts. This metabolism enables catabolism and anabolism of nutrient agents which has the capability of infective agent recognition. Strategies of pathogen manipulation of host nutrients could serve as therapeutic targets.
