    The purpose of the following study is to determine where the two unknown bacteria acquired in Microbiology lab should be classified in regards to temperature, pH level, and osmoregularity. It is important to classify bacteria in order to identify them. Identification of bacteria is important because they are not only useful but potentially dangerous as well. The identification of bacteria can lead to breakthroughs in healthcare regarding treatment of old and new diseases alike. Identifying bacteria...

    step that was used was a three streak method, described in Lab 4, on a Blood Heart Infused/Trypticase Soy Agar plate to isolate the two unknown bacteria. Once the two bacteria were incubated, grown, and isolated they were each individually streaked on a Trypticase Soy Agar plate to isolate individual colonies to be studied, tested and identified. After incubation of the individual TSA plates, the morphologies were viewed and noted and a Gram stain was completed on each individual bacterium, which will...
