The comparison of biochemical and molecular methods to identify unknown skin microbes.

In this research study, an unknown skin isolate was collected and grown in pure culture. Biochemical tests such as gram staining, testing selective and differential media, Kirby-Bauer Disk diffusion, test and molecular tests such as Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) are used to help classify the microbe living on the skin.
