Description

The antibiotic crisis has become an immediate concern in the scientific community. As bacteria and other microorganisms become resistant to the limited number of antibiotics on the market, there is a dire need of research for potential new antibiotics. Soil microbes have been the source of current antibiotics for decades, and continue to show promise in developing new antibiotics. Through serial dilution and streak plating, I have isolated a candidate that can contribute to research within the scientific community in this area. This candidate, temporarily termed “MP #3”, refers to the third microorganism identified on the created master plate of several candidates from the soil sample used. The organism shows an obvious, surrounding secretion that protects the organism.
