Description

A soil sample was gathered from a basement dig at a residential neighborhood construction site in suburban Kansas City. The soil sample was then serial diluted, and colonies of bacteria were grown and isolated. Colony 3 was the bacteria chosen for further investigation. Through PCR and DNA sequencing of the 16s rRNA gene, it was determined this bacterium was from the Burkholderia genus and the species is yet to be determined. Research has been done to optimize the production of antimicrobial metabolites. This species of Burkholderia has been shown to inhibit many types of bacteria, including the human pathogens, Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Further study is planned to isolate and characterize antimicrobial metabolites.
