Abstract

The purpose of this experiment was to find out if bacteriophages are an effective antibacterial method for killing bacteria. To carry out this experiment the general procedure to follow is to get the bacteria resistant to the bacteriophage, then to the antibiotics, and see if the bacteria becomes resistant to the bacteriophage generation 2. The bacteria covered the plate and colonies grew all over the plate in half the time and all of the plates had colonies on them instead of colonies growing on only 3 plates. The bacteria kept its resistance to the bacteriophage after becoming resistant to the antibiotics.
