    Abstract: The effect of NaCl concentration on the growth of gram negative Escherichia coli and gram positive Staphylococcus aureus cells cultivated at 37°C was studied in an effort to understand the importance of NaCl to the growth of these bacteria. The bacteria were grown on standard nutrient agar in three groups containing NaCl concentrations; 0, 1.0 and ... Show More
