The purpose of the project is to investigate the multidrug resistance of MRSA and the genes involved. By investigating the multidrug resistance of our MRSA and comparing it to the known drug resistance of MRSA, we can find out if our method is valid. If the experimental results disagree with the results found in other experiments, we can conclude that either our method was wrong, or our MRSA was not properly prepared, or that the experimental results are correct in this case. To determine this, we will have to repeat the experiment. Once we finish that, we can investigate the DNA of the MRSA. By running the DNA through gel electrophoresis, we can get a rough idea of the DNA involved in the multidrug resistance of MRSA. Hopefully, this will lead to a development of a drug that MRSA is sensitive to.
