Interactive Culture Plates by Dana A.

My experience with Tiny Earth has been interesting and insightful. I truly enjoyed discovering microbes from environmental samples. I think it is important for everyone to learn about what we do in Bio 145 and my goal is that everyone and anyone can experience a little bit of Tiny Earth and learn why it is important to study microbial diversity and to bring awareness to the antibiotic resistance problem. That’s why I created my project called “Interactive Culture Plates”. They consist of fake media and fake bacteria that are made of glue. My idea was to mimic what we did in the lab. I wanted to show how we grew our bacteria and how we tested our soil bacteria for antibiotics against the safe ESKAPEs, which are safe relatives of the six most antibiotic-resistant pathogens encountered in healthcare settings.
