The results of our research are continuing along. we have moved onto testing the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of our unknown bacillus species, F29-3, and CDCA, our unknown chemical compound from a fellow KMU researcher. We test MIC through creating differing concentrations of F29-3 and CDCA, and applying them on multiple discs onto a plate of Staph. Aureus, our bacteria of interest.
Outside the lab, it seems like we arrived in Kaohsiung only a couple weeks ago. Summer always seems to fly by but the entire experience of living abroad has certainly expedited the feeling. I’m continuously thankful for the opportunity to immerse myself in a foreign country and hope to make the most of the time I have left.
