Description

Antibiotics are becoming increasingly resistant to harmful bacteria affecting us. Researching potential antibiotics that fight harmful bacteria is important to improving societies health. Antibiotics that use to kill off nasty bacteria are no longer working therefore in this research, researchers hope to find antibiotics in soil that fight off these secondary metabolites. In this research project bacteria was collected from a flower bed around a residential home hoping to potentially find a new antibiotic. One of the effected methods found was the Cavalier proof plate method that determined bacteria in the soil resistance to a harmful bacterium known as staphylococcus. This flower bed soil sample is resistant to staphylococcus bacteria and potentially resistant to many more harmful bacteria. In future research, researchers hope to find many more soil samples that fight out nasty bacteria affecting society.
