Description

In this course, we learn about antibiotic discovery. Each student gathers a sample of soil and aseptically isolates a specific colony of microbial bacteria from the soil to do research throughout the semester. During the semester we do a series of dilutions, isolations, staining, observing, and testing to be able to draw a series of characteristics of our microbe and share if we believe it is a good candidate for the antibiotic. So far in my project, I have been able to find a candidate I believe is bacillus, spore-forming, and resilient, and am excited to keep researching to share my further findings.
