Free essay: identifying two unknown species of bacteria materials and methods week 1, day 1 (10 november 2000) the first day an unknown sample was assigned. Morphological unknown solving an unknown is a lot like solving a mystery think about the evidence logically and put the pieces together, and you should have little difficulty in determining the identity of your organism remember that the way you solve the unknown is as important-if not more important-than whether or not. Microbiology laboratory class for the identification of an unknown bacterium materials and methods this is where the details of the study are listed where did the specimen come from, and what methods were used to identify it be specific, but do not re write the lab manual one way is to mention the names of the. Now you have your mixed unknown where do you begin this time remember from your morphological unknown that solving an unknown is a lot like solving a mystery think about the evidence logically and put the pieces together, and you should have little difficulty in determining the identity of your organism remember. For the protein analysis, comparing the experimentally obtained protein profile of an unknown bacterial species with the profile information found in a proteomics database will allow for the identification and characterization of the unknown species identifying the virulence factors of pathogenic bacteria is. Identification of unknown bacteria extracted from flagstaff, arizona victoria ziegler bio 205l section e dannielle jensen november 3, 2014. Compared with those of the table and when a similar set of characters is found the unknown organism can be identified diagnostic tables were made in three stages,and different tables were con- structed for gram-positive and gram- negativeorganisms table 1 for gram- positive bacteria and table 2 for gram- negative.
Microbiology discussion and conclusion section of a microbiology lab report in microbiology class students are asked at the end of the semester to identify unknown bacteria using all the lab techniques they have learned and practiced throughout the semester here is a sample of a section of the final lab. Biol-333 module 1 activity identification of unknown bacteria using dichotomous key dichotomous keys are a form of classification that uses flow charts identifying an unknown bacterial isolate usually requires a series of tests conducted based on a pre-defined flowchart or table of results some standard biochemical tests. Begin the process of identifying unknown bacteria by observing their physical characteristics, such as cell wall, shape and linkages use standard laboratory procedures, like cell staining, culturing and dna sequencing to further narrow down your identification bacteria are generally grouped into species. A number of gene sequencing systems are commercially available in the food industry, including the microseq microbial identification system by applied biosystems (foster city, ca) the microseq system analyzes the ribosomal rna gene sequence of an unknown bacterium, yeast, or mold and matches it to sequence of.
Although you will be engrossed in trying to identify an unknown organism, there is a more fundamental underlying objective of this series of exercises that goes far beyond simply identifying an un- known that objective is to gain an understanding of the cultural and physiological characteristics of bacteria physiological. Objective: to identify the bacterial unknowns in a mixed culture by morphological and biochemical methods principle: the identification of bacteria is a careful and systematic process that uses many different techniques to narrow down the types of bacteria that are present in an unknown bacterial culture it produces.
Identification was achieved in 6 hours identification of bacteria from clinical specimens involves three steps: (1) isolation of single colonies of the organism ( 2) characterization of the organism by morphological, biochemical, and serological tests and (3)assignation of the unknown organism to a. To discover the identity of the unknowns that have been given to each student, a series of biochemical tests were requisite the different biochemical. Both mentioned above methods use dedicated optical systems for recording diffraction patterns of the bacterial colonies, construct set of numerical features calculated from the patterns and use statistical analysis for identification of unknown samples the methods use different optical systems, different numerical features.
Million specimens complete identification may not always be warranted and the extent to which identification will be carried will depend on the nature of the specimen and the purpose for which it was submitted practice of identijication the identification of a micro-organism involves comparison of an unknown and a.
This project was created with explain everything ™ interactive whiteboard for ipad. The final project: isolation and identification of one unknown bacteria a lab practical each student will receive a tsa slant containing two bacteria each student is responsible for streaking the bacteria for isolation on the provided tsa plate and for conducting a variety of tests to describe the biological properties of one. No month passes without some new micro-organisms being discovered, many of them having new, hitherto unknown properties an example is the discovery of a new form of phototrophy in two widespread aerobic bacteria in surface waters of oceans (beja et al, 2000 kolber et al, 2000) one of these recently discovered.
