About This Project

Soap Lake, an extreme alkaline lake located in Washington State, is renowned for its “healing effect” since before the advent of antibiotics. This leads to an intriguing hypothesis -“Do microflora that thrive in Soap Lake produce unique bioactive molecules with antibiotic properties?” Our project attempts to answer this question using microalgae isolate obtained from Soap Lake. The main objective is to identify bioactive metabolites with measurable antimicrobial/antifungal properties.
