Biology- Related Experiment Ideas

Postby dabeli123 » Fri Jun 22, 2012 10:04 am

Hi Science Buddies and All,

I am planning to do an experiment this summer because
I am really interested in biology, so I want to do a biology- related
experiment. I need some ideas here like anything dealing with anatomy
or diseases.

Thanks,
Rohit

Welcome,

Science Buddies has many projects to choose from. Try the Science Buddies project idea Topic Selection Wizard at the following link:

http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... deas.shtml

Or at the same link, search for the word "Biology" for ideas related to your interests.

Please post back with any additional questions.
I hope this helps.

Hi theborg,


Thanks a lot for giving me that resource.

Now, I have a few questions, where can i get:
200 μL automatic pipettor with sterile tips,
bent glass rod for spreading bacteria on plates,
37°C incubator for bacterial culture plates( for this i am not sure which one to buy)

Thanks

Hi Rohit,

Which project idea are you considering? It sounds like you are interested in a microbiology project.

Carolina Biologicals has pipette tips and other microbiological supplies. I cannot tell if the pipette tips are sterile, so you should double check that detail.

Pipettors are very expensive. Do you have access to a lab with pipettors where you could do your experiments?

It seems like you are growing bacteria for your project. The following link is a bacteria growing experiment that may be a good resource.

This link is a kit for the project above. You can look at the contents and see if it meets your needs.

This is a link to a lab supply online store.

This with Donna's recommendation may be able to help.
I hope this helps.
