  • Lambdasa2, Lysgay

    contamination significantly reduces ethanol yields in the fermentation process. To remedy this problem, the industry typically uses antibiotic treatments, which do their job well enough, but are costly and aren’t a permanent solution. In the paper “Bacteriophage-encoded…

  • P Aeruginosa Research Paper

    P. aeruginosa is a gram-negative non-sporulating bacillus that belongs to the phylum of Proteobacteria. It can adapt and thrive in different niches, ranging from water/soil to plant/animal tissues. Even though it is commonly found in the environment, it frequently causes infections in plants and animals (1). Luke (1862) was the first to report P. aeruginosa in infections as he observed rod-shaped particles in blue-green pus of some infections. This coloration is a hallmark of P.…

  • Solution For Antibiotic Resistance

    Solution for Antibiotic Resistance So knowing the history about the discovery of antibiotics and what was the main purpose of this drug will put your mind at ease. Like I stated earlier, our society take antibiotics for any reason. One of the best solution is to take a broader view of the microbes. Microbes which are single-cell organisms so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle. They are the oldest form of life on earth. Microbe is a term for tiny creatures that…

  • Antibiotics And Antibiotic Resistance

    With the well of new with antimicrobial compounds drying up, current research on slowing or side-stepping antibiotic resistance is exploring a myriad of possibilities. This paper will focus on methods such as membrane disruption, inhibition, and bacteriophages that are being used alone or together to target resistant…

  • Experimental Analysis: Clostridium Diasporogenes

    Laboratory Analysis Justyna Sudyka 1. a. Clostridium sporogenes grew throughout all of the thioglycollate broth, but there was more growth towards the bottom. The aerobic TSA + glucose plate did not have any growth, but the anaerobic plate did have growth. Escherichia coli grew throughout all of the thioglycollate broth as well, but the organism was clustered slightly more towards the top. There was growth in both aerobic and anaerobic TSA + glucose plates. Micrococcus luteus only grew at the…

  • Phage Lab Report

    surface. This is typically accomplished by the recognition of a receptor on the outside of the bacterial cell wall such as an antigen, pilus or other structure. There is much variability from phage to phage in terms of which receptor they bind to. Bacteriophage can generally be classified into two categories, lysogenic and lytic (virulent) (Fig 6). The choice between the lytic and lysogenic cycle depends on the relative expression rates of phage repressor encoded by a cII gene (promoting…

  • Livestock Production And Climate Change

    Livestock production and climate change affect and get influenced by each other. The most important effects of climate change on the environment and livestock include rise in temperature, elevation in sea level, alteration in microbial eco-system and several others effects, known or unknown which might affect the livestock positively or negatively. There have been various predictions about the quantum of sea level rise with varying degree of confidence because many of the natural phenomena have…

  • The Forever Fix: Gene Therapy

    Contrary to what one would expect based on the title of her book, The Forever Fix: Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It, Ricki Lewis pens a narrative science focused on the milestones in the history of gene therapy, not just one success story (Lewis, 2012). Corey Haas, the boy who regained his vision after being sentenced to a life of blindness, is only one of the medical miracles mentioned; the book also devotes itself to presenting the theory and procedures behind gene therapy. As a…

  • Classification Of Escherichia Coli

    Classification Escherichia coli is a bacterium that is mostly found in humans and other animals. It is a unicellular micro-organism, making its Domain and Kingdom Bacteria. E. coli’s Phylum is Proteobacteria because it is a gram-negative bacterium. It is also in the Phylum Proteobacteria because of the lipopolysaccharides that protect the cell membrane. E. coli is a facultative anaerobic G- bacterium, making its Class Gamma Proteobacteria. Because of its rod-shape, E. coli’s Order is…
