Initial Results

Monitoring bacterial growth on different antibiotics concentrations allows us to infer what is the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for each antibiotic type. Antibiotic concentration just below the MIC are a good starting point for the experimental evolution. In these examples, the MIC was defined as the concentrations with a doubling time above 200 minutes (red bars). We are using the concentration just below the MIC for the evolution experiment (orange bars).

Daily Results

Daily drug regimen

The drug dosing regimen appears below and can be updated by participating student classes (by 3pm, Israel time). The measured generation time calculated by the first 4hr of growth will be updated daily.

Observed doubling time


Final Results

Final project results include the minimal inhibitory concentrations, sequencing of selected genes, and full genome sequence of the winning super-bug.
