I want to know whether Mycoplasma can be grown artificially? or they just depends on host cell unlike normal bacteria ?
but i read it can be grown artificially as it is a genus of bacteria. Yes it also depends on hosts but can be grown without a host as well. Only virus must need a host to survive. isn't it?
I'm not too sure, you've definately got a good question there since the artifical part is new to science and I'm not even sure if it's fully developed.
There are several dozen species of mycoplasma, and they are all parasites. All parasites require a host. Yes, mycoplasma depends on a host.
