Spores and GerminationPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In order for spores, which are metabolically dormant, to return to life they must go through the process of germination. Germination is a complex and vital step in the generation of growing cells from spores. It is known that spore germination is initiated by specific nutrients. The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project was to identify certain initiators that will begin the germination process. Hydrogen Peroxide, uv treated spores and hypochlorite were used to investigate the effect of these lethal agents in the germination process.
