Formamide Sensitivity Torture Experiment
Written by Haley Monette and Thomas Lo
Reasoning: To observe the growth of the yeast cells by adding different concentrations of formamide.
Background: Since previous experiments succeeded with the concentration of the formamide being 3%, we decided to test a range surrounding that mid-point.
We will test .5 increments above and below 3%, ranging from .5%-5.5%, measuring 12 concentrations.
Neg Control- No formamide meaning 50 ul yeast and 50 ul water
- 600ml of concentrated yeast cell solution (OD 600 0.2
