An Analysis of Antibiotic-Producing Bacteria from Soil at UWEC
Antibiotic resistance is a growing crisis in the medical field. In the U.S alone 23,000 people die per year from once easily treated infections. This number is only expected to grow due to the rapid acquisition of modes ...
Analysis of Antibiotics (bacteriocins) From Antibiotic-Producing Bacterial Isolates
The purpose of our research was to potentially find new strains of bacteria with antibiotic-producing abilities that could be effective against pathogenic microorganisms. A variety of soil samples were taken from multiple ...
Survey of Clostridium difficile and Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus in Swimming Pools
Limited research in the U.S. exists exploring Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile in pool water. Previous studies in Europe and Africa detected MRSA and C. difficile in 7.5% and 50% ...
Assessing the Transmission of Bacteriophage Through Masks
The waves of COVID-19 have devastated many countries around the world since 2019 and are known for their high transmission and mortality rate. The primary transmission is through contact with invisible infectious respiratory ...
Analysis of Antibiotic-Resistance Gene Transfer Among Environmental Isolates
Following the discovery of penicillin and methicillin, antibiotics became commonplace by the 1950s. However, due to misuse and overuse, new problems surfaced in clinical settings. Bacteria developed resistance to antibiotics, ...
Incidence of Multi-Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria in Farm Soil and Manure from Wisconsin and Minnesota Farms
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are becoming increasingly more common and deadly. Most of the antibiotics produced are used in the agriculture industry; particularly as feed additive to prevent disease and increase animal ...
