This week in lab we have begun testing the cross-inhibition of the unknown chemical compounds we received from another lab with the Bacillus bacteria that we have. At the end of the week we saw some promising results. One of the bacteria showed a zone of inhibition and the CDCA chemical compound also showed a zone of inhibition. We are going to repeat the experiment three times to confirm these results. My roommate, Swetha gave me a make over and did my makeup in what she said was an Indian way. It was very pretty and she gave me a Bindi and a nose ring too. She has also been telling me about how life is in southern India where she is from.
