Hypothesis
Hypothesis

  • The maximum growth of E. coli will be inhibited as the concentration of ampicillin is increased.


Components
Components

  • Culture (E. coli)

  • Ampicillin

  • 10x lower LB

  • H2O


Experiments 1 4
Experiments 1-4

  • P. fluorescens

    • resistant

  • Titrations

  • No derived conclusion

  • Lead to redesign


Experiments 1 41
Experiments 1-4

  • P. fluorescens

    • resistant

  • Titrations

  • No derived conclusion

  • Lead to redesign


Experiments 1 42
Experiments 1-4

  • P. fluorescens

    • resistant

  • Titrations

  • No derived conclusion

  • Lead to redesign


Experiments 5 10
Experiments 5-10

  • No titrations

    • Altered amounts of ampicillin

  • Varied the ranges each week


Experiments 5 101
Experiments 5-10

  • No titrations

    • Altered amounts of ampicillin

  • Varied the ranges each week

  • Results from each week lead to

    final experiment

Conclusion derived from results
Conclusion derived from Results

  • Maximum growth was not inhibited

    • Normal curve max: 1.088

    • Highest amp max: 1.044

  • Lag phase dramatically affected after 16microL is exceeded

  • IC50 not determined

  • Ampicillin affects length of lag phase

    • Graph consistent with scale
