Description

For this project, the objective was to search for antibiotic producing bacteria. The intention is to hopefully find a new potential antibiotic for the future. Testing includes creating serial dilutions, a master plate, and a quadrant streak plate. Those three experiments helped isolate the bacterial species. We also tested the candidates against safe relatives of ESKAPE pathogens. We will also be testing the candidate metabolically and sequencing to know at least the genus level of the organism. The potential antibiotic could possibly save millions of lives.
