    resistance gene will also be employed in this experiment. Ampicillin will then be added to the transformed bacteria in order to obtain the successfully transformed bacteria. By adding this engineered PSII antenna, the efficiency of light capture is increased. This experimental group will also be placed in nitrogen starved conditions and the photosynthetic (light) conditions will be identical to those in the control group. These mutant…

  • Compare And Contrast Bacteria And Bacteria

    Question 1A: Compare and contrast the general structure of a virus and a bacterium. Bacteria and viruses both do not contain a DNA enclosing nucleus; however, these organisms differ greatly in the complexity of their structures. Generally a bacterium is encompassed within a semi-rigid cell wall made of peptidoglycan, which provides structural support. It is classified as gram positive if its cell wall is thick and stains purple when tested for identification. If its cell wall is thin and stains…

  • Bacteria Lab

    represents the ecology of life with bacteria. To test how the ecology of life works, we measured and reviewed the growth of bacteria after washing one’s hands at different intervals of time. After washing our hands four times in 30 second intervals, we wiped a finger on a different segment of an Agar plate where our bacteria would have a strong environment to grow and develop. To be sure that each individual whose’ hands would be tested had a source of bacteria on them, we had the freedom of…

  • Bacteria Or Prokaryotes

    Bacteria also known as prokaryotes are very ancient single-celled organisms; fossils show that they were widespread 1.5 billion years ago. Today bacteria make up the vast majority of prokaryotes on earth due to the unfavorable ability to adapt quickly to the surrounding environment. Bacteria have the capabilities to survive in areas of high heat, extreme cold, or even very acidic or alkaline conditions. This ability is used frequently to fend off the effects of antibiotics and antibacterial;…

  • Pathogens Of Bacteria

    They get energy from molecules such as sugars. Bacteria uses ATP for growth, movement, temperature regulation, and many other processes. They grow best in unhygienic conditions and can grow very quickly by dividing in half and then the two halves grow and then divide again and so on. grow larger using nutrition gained by digesting food. Bacteria uses a form of asexual reproduction called binary fission to reproduce. Ideal conditions for bacteria includes a warm…

  • Antibiotic Resistance In Bacteria

    The Evolution of Antibiotic Resistance in Bacteria Bacterial infections are a leading cause of death all over the world, especially in children and the elderly, whose immune systems are not at their peak. The discovery of antibiotics in the 1940s provided doctors with a powerful weapon against harmful bacteria, often times by inhibiting their protein synthesis or cell wall formation. Within a few years of their use against certain bacteria, however, some antibiotics’ effectiveness began to…
