An exploration of microbes present in the blood of processed moose
I isolated a bacterium from the blood of a package of locally packaged moose meat. Using bioinformatic systems and physiological tests, I attempted to classify the bacterium found. I narrowed the possibilities to two organisms: Macrococcus caseolyticus or Staphylococcus auerus, and compare and contrast the two using my own observations and support from scientific literature.
