We are working on a Science Fair project. I grew
bacteria and took
it to our local hospital where they did gram stains on the bacteria.
I need to know a simple definition of gram stains and how to the
types explain the types or bacteria that was found (Staph, Neisseria,
Bacillus species, Serratia, Yeast, Strep)?
You can find this information in almost any microbiology text or biology
text. If you put the words "gram stain" in a web search you will also find
the information. Good luck.
