Industrial uses or economic implications:
More than any other bacterium, Escherichia coli is the workhorse of modern biotechnology. Escherichia coli is commonly used for everything from cloning DNA fragments for research to production of biotech products.

Escherichia coli is a common bacterium that is normal flora of the intestinal tracts of humans and animals. Although most Escherichia coli are non-pathogenic E. coli O157:H7 produces a powerful toxin and can cause severe illness.

Human health and disease:
Escherichia coli can cause infection in other parts of the body, especially the digestive and urinary tract.
