Bacterial Genetics Lab Report
December 10, 1999
In this lab we observed the growth of bacteria in a conjugation and transformation experiment. We expected the mating plate of the conjunction to grow and the bacteria on the transformation plates to grow also. We also practiced using aseptic techniques to clean the lab benches and to keep the bacteria from being contaminated from outside bacteria. This lab will take a total of 2 days because of

The DNA becomes part of the chromosome as and exists as an extra chromosomal circular plasmid. The number of cells on the plate must be very high in number because there is only a 10-30% chance of recombinant cells from the original batch of cells.
In this lab I concluded that my bacteria went through conjugation and transformation because of the growth on the plates. The growth is a positive reaction for this experiment.
