Description

My research matters because, gathering dirt samples form Kansas and conducting tests to find possible new species of bacteria that could bring another antibiotic to another strain of MRSA. My research is important because it's going into a database to see if my dirt has been discovered and tested to further find any other strands of MRSA. I have named my bacterium Rose after The Golden Girls. Rose was resistant to a lot of safe relative microbes except one. I found Rose at the end of my driveway in Shawnee, KS, under where I usually keep my trash can. I believe that Rose could be in close relation to Staph. epidermidis and could be a potential new antibiotic for MRSA which is a new, exciting discovery for everyone because everyone is at risk to contracting MRSA at any point in their life, so it is important to find out where your potential antibiotic comes from.
