Description

The goal of Tiny Earth Network is to find antibiotic-producing bacteria to combat highly resistant bacterial species. To do this, serial dilutions were performed, colonies were put onto a master plate, as well as screened against the safe relatives of the ESKAPE pathogens. Afterwards, the bacteria that showed the most zones of inhibition were spread on quadrant streak plates in order to find isolated colonies. Metabolic testing and sequencing were performed in order to find the genus level or more of the bacteria.
