  1. Is anyone aware of current research being done on necrotizing fasciitis? Any current research projects are of interest to me, but particularly those studying its epidemiology and new treatments (other than known surgical, antibiotic, and topical treatments.)

    Microbiology - Cell population count

    That helps, yes. Thank you, kind sir. I'm changing careers midstream, and it's been SO long since I've had to do this.
  3. Hello, I'm a bit frustrated by one section of my microbiology reading for this week. I just can't wrap my head around the variables in the equation for cell population count and prediction of cell numbers in x amount of time. I'm reading https://courses.lumenlearning.com/microbiology/chapter/how-microbes-grow/ . One of the sample questions asks, "With a doubling time of 30 minutes and a starting population size of 1 × 105 cells, how many cells will be present after 2 hours, assuming no cell death?" The formula is Nn=N02n Nn is the number of cells at any generation n, N0 is the initial number of cells, and n is the number of generations. Would someone please translate this formula in a different way so that I can calculate it on my own?
