Escherichia Coli

Transformation Of Escherichia Coli With pGLO Plasmid April 24, 2013 ABSTRACT: This experiment focuses on genetic engineering and transformation of bacteria. The characteristics of bacteria are altered from an external source to allow them to express a new trait, in this case antibiotic resistance. In is experiment foreign DNA is inserted into Escherichia coli in order to alter its phenotype. The goal of the experiment is to transform E. coli with pGLO plasmid, which carries a gene for...

The Effects of Environmental Factors on the Absorbance of Escherichia Coli

bacterium Escherichia coli is being subjected to various environmental factors that affect the rate of growth. These factors scrutinized were the different types of nutrients, the intensity of aeration, or the temperature at which it was stored. The purpose of this lab is to determine which factor affects the Escherichia coli the greatest. It is known that these abiotic factors affect the rate of growth the greatest if they remain at the correct conditions for living. Escherichia coli and other...

Hand Soap Effectiveness On Escherichia Coli

Hand Soap Effectiveness on Escherichia Coli Abstract: Bacteria are an essential part of many different living organisms and ecosystems across the globe. Without bacteria there would have never had been life in the first place. But some bacteria have evolved to cause to humans, resulting in the need to eliminate them through such methods as soap. Hand soap is a crucial part of human health, especially in such places as schools and hospitals. In this experiment I wanted to determine the effectiveness...

Microbiology lab report on Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.

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. Resulting data was analyzed to provide understanding of the use of differing culture media and conditions for bacterial growth. RESULTSFour different agar types were used in this experiment. The first (Nutrient) allowed for growth of both E. coli and S. aureus. The second agar used (MKL)...

Transformation of Escherichia Coli (E.Coli) with Plasmid Pglo

GFP, isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victorea, glows in the presence of U.V light (Sanders and Jackson, 2009). Materials and Methods A 250µl of a calcium chloride transformation solution ‘TS’ was added to each of two different tubes of Escherichia coli HB101 kept in an ice bucket. The tubes were marked as ‘pGLO’ and ‘control’ respectively. A 10µl of pGLO DNA sample was added to the tube marked ‘pGLO’. A 10µl of sterile water was added to the ‘control’ tube; both tubes were placed on ice for...

Bacillus, Mycoplasma, and Escherichia

Bacillus, Mycoplasma, and Escherichia In a clinical setting signs and symptoms can lead a care taker down a treatment path, but if a bacterial infection is suspected, a definitive answer from the “lab” is needed before prescribing medications. In this instance a yellow sputum was produced by the patient, which will be taken to the lab an analyzed under a microscope. There are three suspect bacteria, which are Bacillus, Mycoplasma, and Escherichia. A discussion of staining procedures, as well as...

E. coli

E. coli Escherichia coli, more commonly known as E. coli, are a large group of bacteria. It lives in the digestive tracts of humans and also animals. There are many different types, such as enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) which causes bloody diarrhea. Some types cause urinary tract infections. One other specific type that is real common is called E. coli O157:H7. This type can cause severe anemia, kidney failure, or even death. The way you contract E. coli is coming into contact with feces from...

Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus Albus

Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus albus Some bacteria's require a certain amount of light in order to function properly and there fore survive. Escherichia coli is found in the gut and intestines of mammals. Staphylococcus albus is generally a skin dwelling bacteria Aim: To test whether the amount and type of light that the bacteria's E.coli and S.albus are subject to causes changes in their growth rates and habits. To test whether the growth rates and habits of the bacteria's E. coli...

The Effect of Acetyltransferases on 2 Strains of E. Coli

 The Effect of Acetyltransferases on 2 different strains of E. coli Introduction Scientists have recently discovered that resistance to antibiotics may not be such a new thing. Evidence of bacteria samples in Canadian permafrost proposes that these resistances have been around for at least 30,000 years (Luiggi 2011). In our required pre-lab reading, we learned tuberculosis is becoming increasingly drug-resistant, giving proof that bacteria can adapt to necessary changes in order to survive...

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. In the following experiment, two strains of Escherichia coli bacterial cells (donor F'lac+strs and recipient F-lac-strr) underwent conjugation to produce a transconjugant strain (F'lac+strr). MAC plates and streptomycin were utilized to determine if conjugation had occurred. When plated, the donor colonies appeared red and the recipient...
