Description

I took a sample of soil from my backyard, because I live on the very first street that was built in Olathe. After creating master plates, streak plates, undergoing staining procedures, and testing all the species I found against different safe pathogens, I found one specie particularly interesting. This specie inhibited and made the growth of E. Coli, Staph. Epi., Micro. Luteus, and Bacterium Meg., change its course of growth. I sent it off to get tested to find out more interesting details about it, and to see if there are any close relatives. From my findings, I am hoping to help fight against antibiotic resistance.
