The MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) problem is our inspiration for this project. The project would focus on killing the Staphylococcus species by antimicrobial peptides synthesized in an E.coli model organism. Careful focus on the safety aspects of the project is done to make sure that no harmful strains are let free in the lab or in the environment. Non-virulent strains of Staphylococcus Aureus or close related species to Staphylococcus species will only be used in this project. Rest other transformations are done in E. Coli strain K12. This project also looks into the safety regulations in the lab with great attention to protect any unforeseen contamination in the lab.
