Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

One of the largest issues facing the scientific and medical communities today is antibacterial resistance. It is important that we continue to discover and develop new antibiotics to keep up with the rapidly adapting bacteria that could potentially cause a wide scale pandemic. The purpose of this study is to identify new antibiotic producing bacteria as well as familiarize ourselves with the practices and procedures that industry professionals use. This project is a collaboration with the Tiny Earth Project Initiative (TEPI), which is a global network of educators and students focused on student sourcing antibiotic discovery from soil. We were able to isolate potential antibiotic producers. They were determined to potentially be a Bacillus strain.
