That time I grew a Psuedomonas Colony

Can we talk about how weird it is that bacteria culturing still relies on various parts of ground up animals though. Like there is something called a Brain-Heart Infusion which is literally an infusion of brain and heart.

It is weird. We should start developing synthetics or something I mean really.

So anyway for school I had to swab something and then culture the swab to see what kind of bacteria would grow. I chose a random door handle. All it grew was Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Kind of boring.

Also I can’t take pictures of a microscope field properly.
