Are mutant strains of bacteria that have the same nutritional phenotype identical? In the virtual MicroGCK lab, you can select colonies for further analysis to determine the underlying genetic structure of this similarity. This includes running a cross feeding complementation simulation for strains of nutritional auxotrophs.

  • investigate the genetic basis for phenotypic similarities in bacterial strains by simulating cross-feeding
