Applying the culture and diagnostic techniques learned during the semester, Microbiology students work to identify their assigned bacterial "unknowns".


During the semester students use PCR to amplify species specific DNA fragments from their "unknowns". Using Bioinformatics techniques they compare the fragment sequences to national databases for identification.
