i've been growing bugs this week! i've never been in a micro lab before, and i must admit i am enjoying myself! i successfully streaked plates and isolated various colonies! i also gram stained!!! woo! i also swabbed in between my toes for an "environmental" plate and only grew ONE colony...one of my friends swabbed behind her boyfriend's ears and it grew some freaky stuff...so my toes are cleaner than his ears! hahaha...i found that humorous. my toe colony grew gram-positive cocci, nothing marvelous. my lab prof said that he knew it wasn't strep, so that was comforting.
other than that, study study study!!!
