Students will practice microbiological laboratory techniques to get up close to bacteria.
Practice microbiological laboratory techniques to get up close to bacteria.
Students will use several methods to identify different bacteria. The first, aseptic techniques to pour and streak plates to grow bacterial colonies. They will also prepare slides with a gram stain to examine and identify bacteria under our research grade microscopes.
Students follow this by examining the effects of a range of antibiotics on a strain of bacteria and make recommendations for an effective treatment.
