Description

This project involves attempting to find bacteria that have antibiotic properties. Antibiotic resistance has risen, so by collecting candidates from soil an attempt to find a specimen with antibiotic properties is made. Using soil from Overland Park, it was first diluted enough to get individual specimens. The soil was then tested against the ESKAPE pathogen relatives. The Overland Park soil resulted in several candidates however one in particular stuck out, Happy. Happy exhibited positive antibiotic properties in all of the ESKAPE pathogen relatives. After staining, Happy is a gram positive non spore forming bacillus.
