Transforming E. coli

Students in Mrs. Janine Koenig’s science class conducted an experiment for the transformation of E. coli bacteria by introducing two new genes into the bacteria’s genome. The two genes that were inserted were a gene to make it resistant to Ampicillin and a gene to make it fluoresce called Green Fluorescent Protein or GFP gene.

All student groups were successful in the transformation, making their genetically modified organisms.
