Description

My organism named MLPD was found in soil sample in my front yard. It was found about 3-4 inches under the grass line it was a partly cloudy day with a temperature around 41F. The soil type was clay and sandy. After doing soil dilution, making master plates, and doing screens against tester strains I found that MLPD showed signs of inhibition. MLPD was irregular in shape but fairly large. It showed the most promise in inhibiting Staphylococcus epidermidis. Staphylococcus epidermidis is a safe relative of Staphylococcus aureus which is found to resistant to many antibiotics. Because MLPD shows inhibition during the screening with S. epi I am hoping with further research and development MLPD could have a profound effect on the resistance of S. aureus.
