Italicise Taxonomic Families, Genera, Species, SubspeciesSource:
According to the binomial nomenclature, the lowest four taxonomic levels (family, genus, species, subspecies) should be printed in italics. This function finds taxonomic names within strings and makes them italic.

type of conversion of the taxonomic names, either "markdown" or "ansi", see Details
This function finds the taxonomic names and makes them italic based on the microorganisms data set.
The taxonomic names can be italicised using markdown (the default) by adding
* before and after the taxonomic names, or using ANSI colours by adding
\033[3m before and
\033[23m after the taxonomic names. If multiple ANSI colours are not available, no conversion will occur.
This function also supports abbreviation of the genus if it is followed by a species, such as "E. coli" and "K. pneumoniae ozaenae".
