Lab Report Template & Rubric (Title is a sentence that states the major finding of your experiment) (2 pts) Your name and Instructor’s name (1 pt.) Department of Biology, Harold Washington College (1 pt.) Introduction Use textbook and reliable academic and scientific sources (see below in References) to write: Background on cells, organisms and essays used. (4 pts) Purpose of experiment and hypothesis. (2 pts) Materials & Methods (4 pts) Use past tense to briefly describe the media, cell lines, reagents, tools and experimental steps you did. Do NOT list reagents or steps. Use a paragraph format instead (plain English). Results (6 pts) Describe your results including figures, images and/or tables if any. Use a legend (short description) below every figure/table and number them. Do NOT discuss your results here. Just describe. For example, bacteria Gram stained pink (this is an observation that should be in this section), thus they are Gram negative (this is an inference that should NOT be here in Results, but in Discussion) Discussion (8 pts) As you discuss, please display the four potential analytical skills below. 1. Analysis: analyzing data; using statistics to support an argument 2. Interpretation: making comparisons; classifying data and formulating categories 3. Evaluation: evaluating the credibility of references, bias, contradictions and errors; suggesting alternatives 4. Inference: questioning evidence, developing alternative hypothesis and drawing conclusions To get a sample how to apply these skills in writing, please refer to Discussion in any scientific article! Do results agree with literature? If not, why? Does your technique need modification? How? Do not reiterate your results but for what is necessary for the sake of discussion. State your major finding (this should be reflected in your title!) References (2 pts) Use APA style in citations Use textbook and outside sources such as PubMed, CDC, NIH, FDA, WHO or scientific journals such as Science, Nature, Cell, Immunity, Annual Reviews, New England Journal of Medicine, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of immunology, Infection and Immunity, etc. _Cite references whenever using someone else’s ideas, thoughts, or words, including those made in discussion forums. Use double quotation marks for verbatim short quotes. _Summarize or paraphrase, do not copy, text from resources. Notes _Abbreviation: Bacterial names should be full in title and first mention in article: Staphylococcus aureus. Abbreviate afterwards: S. aureus _Nomenclature: Genus name is capitalized, species name is lower case and both are italicized or underscored: Staphylococcus aureus or Staphylococcus aureus. _Grammar/typos/punctuation: Please refer to the Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr., Proofread before submission. _Use Microsoft Word, Arial font, size 11, and 1.0 line spacing

The resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa by action of gram-positive antibiotics
Your name and Instructor’s name

One of the major groups of microorganisms responsible for most of the infections is the bacteria. This group are
unicellular microorganisms without nucleus (prokaryotes), their genetic material is contained within a single
circular chain of DNA. The interior of the bacteria (cytoplasm) is enclosed within a cell membrane that also is
surrounded by a rigid cell wall and a capsule layer, made of lipopolysaccharides and lipoproteins (Knight &
Schlager, 2002). The presence of peptidoglycans in the cell wall is a taxonomical criterion for bacteria
classification and could be determined by the Gram stain test, dividing the bacteria in two groups: gram-positive
-like Staphylococcus aureus- and gram-negative bacteria -like Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli(Madigan, Martinko, Stahl, & Clark, 2012).
The growth and multiplication of bacteria can be blocked by the action of chemicals called antibiotics They are
classified by their structure and action mechanism. Neomycin is classified as an aminoglycoside, it's used
against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and inhibit the subunit 30S of the ribosome in the protein
synthesis. Erythromycin, a macrolide used against gram-positive bacteria, also inhibit another subunit in the
protein synthesis, the 50s subunit in the ribosome. Instead, bacitracin, used against gram-positive bacteria,
blocks the synthesis of the cellular wall (Madigan et al., 2012).
Bauer, Kirby, Sherris & Turck, (1966) improved the paper disk method, for determining susceptibility of bacteria
to antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents, by the interpretation of the inhibition zones. The interpretation of the
antibiotics used in this work could be reviewed in the Table 1.

Inhibition zone diameter
Resistant Intermediate Sensitive
12 or less
17 or more
Erythromycin 13 or less
18 or more
8 or less
13 or more
Table 1. Zone sizes and their interpretation for antibiotics used in this work (Bauer et al., 1966).
The increasing occurrence of resistant bacteria is happening worldwide, endangering the efficacy of antibiotics.
This “crisis” has been attributed to abuse of antibiotics, extensive agricultural use, and slow development of new
antibiotics by the drug industry due...
