Serial dilutions/antibiotic resistance!!!

Post by bomb4268 » Thu Oct 29, 2009 12:37 am

What is the point of doing serial dilutions for antibiotic resistance? As of today, what has such experiment revealed about antibiotic resistance? What are some things not solved by such experiment and what are some things to do next with such topic?
