Responses should be in a short answer format, so there is no need to include an introduction, body and conclusion. Be specific and thorough with your answer. Your response to the question should be at least 150 words long. If your answer is too brief you will lose points. The reason I require a minimum word count is to ensure that the length of your response is adequate for development.
An answer that’s longer than necessary won’t cause you to lose points, as long as everything you write is correct-don’t include irrelevant information!
1) As a microbiologist in a new biotech company, you are interested in discovering new antibiotics that will kill bacterial pathogens. You have been given a liquid sample of a chemical substance to test in order to determine if it kills bacterial cells. As a startup, you don’t have a lot of money so you have to draw on the culture techniques of Robert Koch. Describe Koch’s postulates. Using Robert Koch techniques design an experiment that would allow you to determine the killing properties of the sample substance. Correlate your experimental plan with specific postulates.
