2022 Spring - Tarleton - Wed - Taryn Gibbs - Agricultural field

Description

It is reasonable to conclude that the CSM paraoxon sample had successfully cultured some paraoxon degrading bacteria after the five week process of successive inoculations. This is not only due to its visible yellow color, but also the bacterial count, 3.50 x 107, many magnitudes above that of the SSM sample growths which can reasonably be considered errors. This error classification is supported by the results of a t-test comparing the SSM and CSM sample groups, which yielded a value of 0.011, and the lack of obtainable sulfur in the paraoxon molecule.
