Research in the Maki laboratory

NCUR 2013
Amber and Whitney presenting our results at NCUR 2013
We have recently begun a new research project pursuing the antimicrobial compounds found in honey. Regional honey is currently being tested in the lab for its efficacy against Escherichia coli and Bacillus thuringiensis, gram-negative and gram-positive organisms, respectively. Turbidity by microplate assay and and determination of colony forming units on agar plates are the two main techniques being initially employed. Future studies will focus on isolation and characterization of the antimicrobial compounds.
