Description

With the progressive resistant properties to antibiotics of many varying species of bacteria, our available defenses against these bacteria are quickly becoming more obsolete.Because of this, our class has conducted an experiment to potentially isolate a colony that will inhibit the growth of different types of bacteria around it. This experiment to find out potential candidates was isolated from each of our own samples of soil. The potential colonies were then tested against gram-negative and and gram-positive bacteria to try and indicate which bacterial colonies could produce inhibition zones. And antibiotic producing bacteria resulted in which metabolic testing and sequencing will be performed to identify the organism.
