Antibiotic Resistance in Soil Microbes

The purpose of this experiment was to determine if soil microbes could build resistance to antibiotics over time. To accomplish this, I exposed soil microbes to antibiotics. I then selected the strongest of these microbes and used them to further the experiment. Through this process of selective breeding, I was able to end up with resistant bacteria. The results were soil microbes that are almost completely immune to the antibiotic that I used.
