Useful for teaching bacterial identification and the intercellular transfer of genes for antibiotic resistance between microorganisms. Students identify and confirm the identity of bacteria with different antibiotic resistance by streaking on different antibiotic selective media. Strains are then combined on a "mating" plate to allow conjugation. Results are tested on various media for growth response to demonstrate that DNA can be transferred between 2 genetically different cells.

Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some background knowledge.

Developed in cooperation with Dr. Robert Thomson, formerly of Marquette University. Useful for teaching bacterial identification and the intercellular transfer of genes for antibiotic resistance between microorganisms. Students identify and confirm the identity of bacteria with different antibiotic resistance by streaking on different antibiotic selective media. Strains are then combined on a "mating" plate to allow conjugation. Results are tested on various media for growth response to demonstrate that DNA can be transferred between 2 genetically different cells. Requires an overnight culture and minimal teacher preparation. Kit is designed for 16 to 32 students working in groups of 2 or 4 (8 stations).

Note: Order the kit with the perishable materials included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product fits perfectly into my curriculum I was happy that it reinforced content but I was not happy that the some of the petri dishes were broken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lab for High School students I have used this lab with my high school school students last year and this year. Teacher and student directions are well written and easy to follow. Students were able to get the expected results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit I used this kit twice this school year and got excellent results both times. While the prep time for the teacher is a bit lengthy, it is well worth it to have your students understand the concepts of bacterial conjugation. It is easy to follow both for students and teachers. I would recommend it highly.
