Jason Thomas Monday 9am Lab Period TA: Monica T. Chapter 7 Lab Report Introduction and Purpose The purpose of this lab is to study and examine the different stages of growth in a bacterial sample. Using the bacteria Escherichia Coli students were to study the growth of the bacteria in two different environments, room temperature and 37 degrees Celsius. By using a spectrometer students were able to evaluate when the specimen was experiencing the different phases of bacterial growth, lag phase, log phase, stationary phase and the death phase. Using 2 different types of media, GMS plate and a Luria broth agar plate we can compare the different ways that bacteria grows given the type of media it is inoculated in. Bacterial growth is dependent on several factors which include temperature, pH, osmotic pressure, nutrient availability and type of media. Materials LB tube Eppendorf tubes P200 Micropipette 3 LB plates Rack for Eppendorf tubes Spectrophotometer Ecoli Culture Methods 1) Transfer 1ml culture of Luria broth into cuvette and place in spectrophotometer to zero out the reading.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
