Microbiology lab reportpractica #1btc307lamber amelingmeierthursday, september 18, 2008objectivesin this lab experiment two different types of bacteria, escherichia coli and staphylococcus aureus, were grown singly and mixed on four different types of agar in order to observe the varying morphologies within the colonies. Escherichia coli or e coli is a gram negative, bacillus, bacteria e coli makes a great bacterial candidate for the bacterial transformation because it is made up of one cell, it reproduces every twenty minutes, it does not harm people, and it cannot survive outside of the lab. Total coliform and e coli are specifically and simultaneously detected and identified the 1 cfu/100ml of sample, in 24 hours or less, by inoculating the reagent with the water sample and incubating it. Lab report of the experiment of conjugation of e coli 2238 words jan 21st, 2010 9 pages abstract:conjugation is a natural occurring process that involves the transfer of dna from one cell into another through a physical connection between the cells.
Biotechnology bacterial transformation lab: the effects of pglo dna on e coli method introduction bacteria transformation is the process of a bacterium absorbing and integrating naked dna located on the surface of their membrane. Escherichia coli is quite a unique bacterium due to the fact that some strands can cause a lot of harm, disease, and sickness to animals and humans, while some. For the first part of the experiment we predicted that the e coli and b cereus bacteria would be gram-negative since they cause food poisoning. Class practical escherichia coli (e coli) can produce the enzyme β-galactosidase which breaks lactose into galactose and glucosehowever, the gene for β-galactosidase is normally switched off, except in the presence of lactose.
Microbiology lab report on escherichia coli and staphylococcus aureus essay sample in this lab experiment two different types of bacteria, escherichia coli and staphylococcus aureus, were grown singly and mixed on four different types of agar in order to observe the varying morphologies within the colonies. Individual lab report follow the lab report guidelines laid out in the page called specifications for writing your lab reports in the technical communication section of this manual the following discussion points should be addressed in the appropriate section of the lab report. Escherichia coli are a gram- negative bacterium commonly found in the human digestive tract, which helps to break down food and helps absorb many necessary vitamins, like vitamins b12 and k (hu 2002. Lab report of the experiment of conjugation of e coli abstract:conjugation is a natural occurring process that involves the transfer of dna from one cell into another through a physical connection between the cells. E coli prefers the body's warmer temperature and thrives off of breaking down the food in the intestines (4) the e coli strain o157:h7 is the only known strain out of the hundreds discovered that can cause humans to become sick.
The e coli membrane pores opened up during the heat shock, so it could more readily accept the plasmid we inserted what was our transformation efficiency transformation efficiency is a value which tells us how well we were able to insert the plasmid into the bacteria. Bacteria streaking - e coli lab report introduction escherichia coli, or e coli, is a common bacterium that can be found in diverse environments all over the planet, including the gastrointestinal tracts of animals and humans. Follow directions on the ecoli vials to make plates 24 hours prior to lab aliquot microtubes with just over 1 ml of 50 mm cacl 2 to each be shared by two lab groups make a 10% bleach solution to fill squirt bottles and the large disposal container. Example of a lab report written on e coli for a microbiology unknown report project 2 unknown bacteria were give to students to identify and report on.
Escherichia coli after performing the gram stain to determine that the unknown was a gram negative rod, the organism was grown on a tsa slant for use in inoculating the rest of the biochemical tests. Escherichia coli, originally known as bacterium coli commune, was identified in 1885 by the german pediatrician, theodor escherich (14, 29) e coli is widely distributed in the intestine of. Ampicillin is an antibiotic that kills e coli, so if e coli, so if e coli cells contain the ampicillin-resistance gene, the cells can survive exposure to ampicillin since the ampicillin-resistance gene encodes an enzyme that inactivates the antibiotic. The purpose of this lab was to transform e coli to include a plasmid containing the lux operon, making the bacteria luminescent in this experiment, we used colonies of e coli bacteria and a plasmid that contained both the lux operon for luminescence and a gene for ampicillin resistance.
