Description

The soil I chose to research came from a wooded area in Spring Hill, Kansas. I was hoping my soil would have bacteria that had not yet been in contact with many humans, and would not have been currently used, or known. I, of course, knew my sample was going to hold the next breakthrough antibiotic. That being said, I had minimal zones of inhibition and a lot of mess. I had to redo a few dilution plates and finally was successful at finding a few zones. After I created a master plate I put my cultured bacteria head to head with all of the relatives of the ESKAPE pathogens. Not even one of my candidates succeeded. At this point in my research I am going to seek out a healthy adoption and hope I am still able to find the next break through antibiotic.
