single bacterium

Post by angel92 » Tue Jul 23, 2013 2:22 pm

Is it possible that some colonies are derived directly from more than a single bacterium (that is a single cell not strain) taken from the liquid culture? State why

You might want to try actually thinking about this - it is not a hard question.

Should the question really be is it possible to get a viable colony from a SINGLE bacterium? That would appear to me to be a more sensible question.
