  1. Great presentation! Since your negative controls failed, did you perform an agar diffusion test/Mueller Hinton plates?

    1. We did not perform an agar plate however, I would have hypothesized our compound wouldn’t have had a zone of inhibition

  2. This was a great presentation! Are there changes or modifications that could be made to the chemotherapy drugs to make them more effective?

    1. Thank you! We would need to do more research on chemotherapeutic drugs with different structures to the two that we tested before making this assumption. This is because we are not sure whether it is not effectively killing the S. typhimurium because of the specific structure or because chemotherapeutic drugs jut don’t work at all.

  3. I enjoyed watching your presentation! Since your plates presented as invalid, you mentioned that you would need to do more research and collect more data. What kind of research or experiments do you think you would perform?

    1. Hi! We would redo the 3 experiments (the Max Dose Procedure, the Dose Response Procedure, and the Bacteriostatic/Bacteriocidal Procedure).

  4. Nice presentation! Why do you think other chemotherapeutic drugs with different structures could perform better than the ones you tested?

    1. Hi! Because both Azacitidine and Deoxycytidine have very similar molecular compounds and both did not work, we assumed that other chemotherapeutic drugs with different structures would work. We thought this because chemotherapeutic drugs work by inhibiting protein synthesis within the cell’s body which stops the growth of a new cell.

  5. This was a great presentation! Why was S. typhimurium chosen instead of another pathogenic bacterium?

    1. Thank you! We chose S.Typhimurium because that was the bacterium that we were working on in class.
