PART 2: Mini-report of Unknown Organism (50 points)

Please include the following sections. Double-spaced, 12 point font.

Introduction and relevant information about the organism you uncovered (20 points)

2-3 paragraphs long. The section should include several paragraphs of background information (i.e. give some general information about the topic/organism you are investigating). Whole report be written in proper English, correct grammar, and spelling and scientifically accurate. This must be your own work reporting your journey in uncovering the Genus species of your unknown bacterium. Make sure to properly format scientific names.

Results / Conclusion (20 points)

The results section also needs to be written in paragraph form but try not to only have one paragraph, it makes for very difficult reading. In the results section you will summarize the results you obtained based upon the all the tests you performed on your organism. Please include any problems you may have encountered. 

For example: The phenol red carbohydrate tests for fermentation from glucose, lactose, mannitol and arabinose were performed. The lactose and mannitol test was performed on unknown #__ and it showed negative after 48 hours of incubation. Glucose and arabinose were yellow after incubation representing acid was produced lowering the pH of phenol red.

References (10 points)

I also require at least five citations.  References should be written following the following format:

Ehrlich, P.R., Raven, P.H. (1969) Differentiation of populations. Science 165: 1228-1232.

References should include lab manual, Bergey’s manual.
