Antibiotic resistant bacteria is becoming increasingly more important. The more bacteria is resistant to antibiotics the less antibiotics will work and this will cause more illness and a need for more research into what still works on these bacteria. The research conducted this semester in Dr. Haslam’s office was to help with this issue.  the process started with finding the amount of DNA was in each small sample we had of 4 different kinds of bacteria, Pneumonia, Aureus, Tuberculosis, and M.abscessus. this was then used for the NextraXT assay with bead normalization.
