Detection of antibiotic resistant genes found in E. coli bacteria and phage
Region:Manitoba Schools Science Symposium
City:Winnipeg , MB
School:Acadia School
Abstract:Antibiotic resistance in bacteria has become an increasing problem and this is mainly due to the misuse and greater usage of antibiotics in the world today. The main goal was to detect a relationship between the antibiotic resistant genes in E.coli bacteria and bacteriophage through different assays which will indicate the transfer of these genes from the phage to the bacteria.
