    the organism. Bacteria transformation is a natural process that bacteria have evolved in order to take up free DNA from their environment. Today’s lab, we are transforming bacteria with a gene that code for green fluorescent protein (GFP) Our purpose for this lab is to demonstrate how bacteria transformation performs in different conditions. The results we got form this experiment is that E.coli exposed to pGLO grown on the plates with (-) LB, (+) LB/Amp, and (+) LB/Ara. No bacteria colonized on the

  • Are Antibiotics Resistant Bacteria? Essay

    been used for so long that the infectious bacteria managed to adapt to the drugs making them less effective. Nowadays, antibiotic resistant bacteria have become increasingly more common causing the death of thousands of people around the world. Indeed, bacteria possess plasmids. Plasmids are circular DNA molecules, separate from the main chromosome that are replicated and transmitted to daughter cells during cell division. Plasmids can allow the bacteria to live under environmental stresses. Antibiotic

  • The Effects Of Bacteria And Its Effects On The Environment

    1456 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction Bacteria are important microorganisms because they are used by humans for many reasons (Goel, 2014). For example, they are being use in the production of food such as cheese and vinegar; production of medical substances such as drugs; biotechnology, etcetera (Goel, 2014). Thus, such bacteria have to be mass produced to be exploited for many purposes in the industry (Goel, 2014). Batch culture, a closed system with limited supply of nutrients for growth, is commonly used for large-scale

    antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The reader will also be able to understand how there are many great advantages from using antibiotics in the animals but there a drawbacks and steps that are being taken to prevent the bacteria from getting into the human body when consumed. They reader will learn what the F.D.A does to try to prevent the bacteria from being consumed. The reader will also get an understanding to improve the animal production

    work surface with disinfected wipes to prevent cross contamination each time. Utilizing the gloves and personal protective equipment assisted in maintaining a pure culture during the series of experiments. The first step, was to grow the yeast and bacteria cultures. The materials used for the Aseptic Technique Experiment(1) were: test tube rack, 5 mL nutrient broth tubes, pipettes, a lit tea light, Fleischmen’s rapid yeast pack, E. Coli tablet and the S. epidermidis tablet. Started by activating

    Therefore, antibiotic resistant bacteria could potentially cause an apocalypse if conditions discussed are met. If the US government and countries like continue to ignore the problem caused by giving livestock antibiotics too frequently, then it will not matter how many hospitals in the US or India, as previously discussed, reform their practices. The dense population of India and their sacred belief in cows can help promote the spread of resistant bacteria, as it has already been increasing according

  • Antimicrobial Bacteria Case Study

    853 Words  | 4 Pages

    The high level of resistance to antimicrobial drugs among bacteria colonizing commercial livestock has raised concerns about the significance to human health of such resistance. The transmissibility of resistant organisms from animal to human hosts has been fundamental to this concern. Kathy Parsonnet and Edward Kass, conducted a study on women who compared Escherichia coli (E. coli) and the rate of contracting the disease. Parsonnet and Kass studied about seven hundred and fifty women from a meat

  • Phylogenetic Analysis of Thermophilic Bacteria

    1568 Words  | 7 Pages

    We report the community of thermophilic bacteria cultivated from Tanjung Sakti Hot Spring in South Sumatera Indonesia that has temperature 80 – 91 0C and pH 7 – 8. Based on phylogenetic analysis, the 16 sequences of 16S rRNA gene fragments obtained from the community clustered within four distinct genera as Anoxybacillus, Geobacillus, Brevibacillus, and Bacillus. Two sequences that have 96% similarity with data sequences in GenBank, are potentially as novel species/sub species. Hot spring is a unique

  • The Invention Of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

    1691 Words  | 7 Pages

    and by 1940, scientists reported that bacteria had developed resistance. In February 27, 2017, The World Health Organization (WHO) published its first-ever list of antibiotic-resistant priority pathogens–a catalogue of 12 families of bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health. In the category Priority 1, which WHO entitled as critical, is Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae, (CRE) (Lawe-Davies & Bennet, 2017). Antibiotic-resistant bacteria have changed their response to the use

    internalisation of subgingival bacteria by epithelial cells represent invasion by the bacteria or a defensive strategy of the host? I.D. 58962 Word Count:1828 Summary Residence within host gingival epithelia cells provides bacteria with a nutrient-rich, generally reducing environment that is partially protected from the host immune system. Accessing this secure environment isvital in the early stages of sulcus colonization by periodontal bacteria, as low numbers of bacteria are susceptible to clearance
