Description

The goal of my project is to look for novel microorganisms that grow in the soil. That is why I collected soil samples from around my garden, which is a peaty soil (dark brown or black in color, soft, easily compressed) to evaluate in the lab. A small sample of soil contains millions of bacteria. My goal is to search for information related to soil microorganism. The soil environment is a world - a complex ecosystem formed through many biological, physical and chemical processes. The accumulation of the first organic matter on the parent rock surface is due to autotrophic microorganisms. These microorganisms live on inorganic substances, disintegrate inorganic substances, and synthesize organic substances forming their cells. When those microorganisms die organic matter accumulates. Heterotrophic microorganisms live the formed organic substances. Microorganisms are essential for all life. If we can understand the basics of this microbial life, we will be able to proceed to find solutions to problems such as antibiotic resistance. I will continue to characterize a novel microorganism. I successfully isolated from my soil sample.
