Redo Lab Day 2

-Broth culture from Day 1 to inoculate:
100 test tubes containing 3mL sterile broth inoculate with 3mL of diluted broth culture
1 flask containing 300mL sterile broth inoculated with 30mL of diluted broth
-Inoculated for 21 hours at 36 degrees Celsius in shaker incubator
-Put into shakers so that bacteria can't share genes with each other, stopping bacterial sex

I never realized that putting things in shaker incubators kept bacteria moving, and in return prevented them from having sex. Also, I thought it was funny that she explained the shaker incubator using humans saying that it would be kind of impossible for humans to have sex if someone kept knocking on the door all of the time.
