Great job, Jesus! It’s wonderful that you were able to generate hits across a wide range of concentrations and you were able to control that effect! Do you know what the source of your compound is, like is it found naturally in plants?

Thank you! Unfortunately I do not know if the compound has a natural origin, it may have been synthesized for a different purpose than to affect S. Typhimurium, but I will look into it!
Thank you! I do not know whether the compound can be found naturally, it may have been synthesized for another purpose and its properties are being discovered through research like this!
This was really interesting! What do you think would be the biggest risk for using this as a future medical treatment?
Interesting indeed! There are many risks involved when a drug is administered, and in some cases side effects for that compound are inevitable. Unfortunately, we did not test the compound on animal cells, but a risk to look out for is the potential interaction of the drug with the cells it comes into contact with when administered. These interactions could kill or negatively affect these cells.
This was a really good presentation! Do you believe that the results would be similar using a compound other than furamidine?
Thank you! There are many compounds out there that we know have antibacterial properties and many compounds that we have yet to discover, so yes there could be other compounds that could show similar results!
What is the relationship between Furamidine concentration and effectiveness?
The results show that as the concentration of furamidine is lowered, the higher the absorption values of the well. This means that furamidine is less effective against the bacteria as its concentration is lowered. Does this answer your question?
