Description

When attempting to study microorganism’s isolation is very important, doing so is key to understanding their capabilities. Currently, most media is formulated to grow microorganism’s that thrive in nutrient rich environments. Due to this, only a small amount of lake water bacteria has been cultured. My project is to create a new type of media that can be used to grow and isolate those microorganisms that live in lake water. This is done by taking a medium recipe designed for coastal ocean microbes and modifying it to reflect lake Michigan nutrient concentrations.
