Description

The problem with the antibiotic-resistant pathogen has been increased for many years. The Small World Initiative is a fantastic program for a college student in JCCC searching for an antibiotic in a microbiology lab. The process starts with the sample soil from the environment complement with required characteristics. The soil has been through serial dilution and isolates with a series of methods. Candidate EM5, which show a zone of inhibition to ESKAPE relative bacteria is chosen to proceed to the next step. To obtain a pure culture, the streak plate method is performed. The following steps for this research will be performing PCR and antibiotic screening for my candidate pathogen.

Comments

The faculty supervisor for this project was Tarik El Mellouki, Biology.
