Description

In this day and age antibiotic resistance is become a debilitating issue in healthcare, in order to do our part to combat these mutating viruses and bacteria the microbiology program at JCCC had become dedicated to finding new potential candidates that could become next level antibiotics. In doing my part I collected a sample of soil from my apartment complex in Olathe, KS and began my experiment to isolate colonies and test them against safe relative of ESKAPE pathogens to see if there could be any potential antibiotic candidates. After the first phase of my experiment I had found five possible candidates that demonstrated antibiotic properties against at least one relative of these pathogens. Starting the second phase I gave four of these pathogens to my classmates so that they could continue their research and kept one. I named my sample Roger and will continue to test in the hopes that he will become a new antibiotic that can create a difference in the world of healthcare.
