    Discussion: The isolate studied was tested for innate antibiotic function on the following media: AC, LB, and 10% TSA. The ESKAPE relative strain that presented a response to the isolate was B.subtilis. In all cases except for that of LB, the isolate showed antibiotic qualities towards B.subtilis by presenting a zone of clearance on AC and 10% TSA media. This behavior is shown in Figures 4, 5, and 6.In the case with LB, B.subtilis inhibited the growth of the isolate as depicted by the empty…
