What temperature will your culture plates (petri dishes) be incubated at after inoculation (Lab 11)?
-It will depend on the temperature assigned to my group.
The organisms used for this lab are mesophiles. We are testing their ability to SURVIVE up to 40 min. exposure to higher temperatures, but upon subculture, the TSA subculture plates are incubated at 37C, their optimum GROWTH temperature.
