DH5α is specific strain of E. coli that is a nonpathogenic bacterium belonging to the genus Escherichia. I used this type of bacteria to study comparative growth rates at different temperatures (28°C, 37°C, and 45°C) and for different times (24h, 48h, and 72h). I predicted that bacteria would grow best at 37°C compared to the other temperatures, because the mean temperature of many mammals is 37°C. Mammals often serve as a host to E. coli. To compare growth rates, I grew the bacteria in liquid… Expand
