Sample that has not been cataloged in a genomic data repository, with a positive number of Paraoxon bacteria growth and zero Methyl Parathion bacteria growth
This sample was collected by the Buffalo Bayou at Buffalo Bayou Park.
Stopped on the side of the street near the facility, near a large electrical box and plenty of weeds.
Sample was positive for paraoxon degradation.
Samples pictures under "sample background".
Sample was taken from a barren area by the water. The day was hot and it had not rained in a couple of days so the sample was dry.
The sample was able to tolerate Paraoxon but it could not degrade it.
This sample was collected near the Brazos River. The bacteria isolated was found to tolerate Paraoxon but unable to hydrolyze it.
This soil sample was taken from beside the road in front of two chemical factories, located in/near Almeda Heights close to Pearland, besides Beltway 8. Could not get into the small street right in-between the two factories as it was gated.
The soil sample was collected from a retention basin that flooded during Hurricane Harvey.
The sample was collected in the Stude Park surrounded by a lot of plants.
The presence of growth on my Glycerol Minimal Media agar plate indicates I have bacterial strains that are capable of tolerating the pesticide, Paraoxon. I also have a few colonies with halos which are an indication of hydrolysis, meaning that I also have a strain that might be capable of degrading OP compounds.
