My name is Jacob Harvey, and I'm a grade 11 student from Grant Park High School in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I have been mentored at the University of Manitoba for the past 3 years and have worked in their Biosystems Engineering Lab on projects concerning the development of biodegradable plastics produced via biosynthesis by a variety of different microorganisms. I hope to continue this research into grade 12 and overall the entire experience has been great for me. I would definitely recommend anyone with even the slightest interest in science to participate in local fairs and if possible, work under a mentorship program.

Medium Optimization for Cheap, Novel Bioplastic Production From P. Putida
Région:Winnipeg Schools
Ville:Winnipeg, MB
École:Grant Park High
Sommaire:Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are biodegradable, biocompatible, thermoplastic polyesters synthesized by a variety of microorganisms from renewable carbon sources. A method of producing PHAs that is theorized to be much cheaper and more productive than current methods is known as continuous culture fermentation. The objective of this project was to derive an ideal medium for PHA production from Pseudomonas Putida in an open continuous system.
