  1. The research was a modified version of the luria delbruck fluctuation test. The idea behind the experiment was that the premise of the fluctuation test and most of the investigations that followed it had one flaw. They assumed that mutability for fixed for an individual cell during its life cycle. A quote from Luria and Delbruck's paper; \\ "The basic assumption of the mutation hypothesis is the assumption of a fixed small chance per time unit for each bacterium to undergo a mutation to resistance. The assumption of a fixed chance per time unit is reasonable only for bacteria in an id
  2. Hi all, I have been able to publish finding from my research in the Russian Open Medical Journal. The paper can be accessed here: http://www.romj.org/2014-0102 In addition, I may also have identified a possible solution for Microbial drug resistance. I welcome any constructive criticism or queries. I can be emailed at melanon@gmail.com romj-2014-0102.pdf
  3. It's called the Paradoxical frog
  4. Quite a few views but no replies. Well, here's the reason why I am looking to do this. I believe that Luria and Delbruck made a small error in the protocol, and the intepretation, which therefore points the way towards Random mutation rather than Directed mutation. In other words, I am hoping to prove using Luria and Delbruck's fluctuating test itself that it is Directed mutation and not random mutation that is the cause for the phage resistant strains that were observed. Any takers now?

  6. Hi, I had originally posted this incorrectly under Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. I am reposting here as this seems the more appropriate forum. **************************************************** Hi, I am looking for someone who has the facilities to conduct a modified Luria-Delbruck fluctuating test. I am willing to pay for the same as a service. Please contact me through email (melanon@gmail.com) or by phone +91 9841119309. Please make note of the following requirements for the project. Minimum of 200 plates for parallel cultures Digital camera
