Description

Antibiotic Resistance has become an important public health problem worldwide. The lack of research and development has become a serious danger to us humans. Here at JCCC, with the help of using aseptic techniques, we get the chance to fully investigate what antibiotic resistance really looks like. I have carefully isolated pure cultures of bacteria from soil. I started with a serial dilution to find any interesting and individual colonies that stood out. I created my master plate, and continued my research on these special microbes. I then tested them against the 6 safe relative ESKAPE pathogens, and I picked the best candidate from my findings and chose to further investigate it. I conducted a variety of staining and chemical tests to try identify this individual bacteria. During my experiment, from looking at the cell walls, I have concluded that my candidate is a gram negative, bacillus organism.
