The Guardian of the Microorganism


My final year project is looking into the interaction between the biofilm produced by bacteria and the predator. The main goal is to elucidate how the biofilm protects the bacteria from the predator’s catch. The biggest difficulty is the time span. The experiment requires me to observe the situation in the petri dish for a consecutive 6 hours. Better time management and more meticulous control are the solutions to the problem. For example, since the experiment requires me to observe for 6 hours, then switching those 6 hours to my most energetic period of the day would definitely help. Luckily, this project is eventually awarded by the Royal Society of Biology in the UK, which is also the accreditation institute of my undergraduate program.
