Group 29

Bifidobacteria is a bacteria known for down regulating inflammation related genes most noticeably in infants. In 2015 a group of scientists decided to test which carbon source the bacteria grew on, made the organism the most effective at gene regulation. Two types of bifidobacteria were tested, B. beves and B. infantis, and each were feed three separate carbon sources: lactose, glucose, and HMO. HMO, which is found in breast milk, was determined to be the best carbon source for both types of bifidobacteria because it significantly increased the gene regulating power of the bacteria. This video provides an overview of the experiment and its findings.

    The changing angles of the camera and its constant motion really detract from the quality of this video. A tripod would have been a good investment to increase the quality of this video. The illustrations and dialogue are well done however.

    Next time put the camera on a steady surface for a steadier frame. I liked your information but some parts were hard to follow

    Visuals were engaging but sometimes didn’t match what was being said.

    The Q and A style peaked my interest. Overall, I found this video engaging, and I really enjoyed the material being presented, as well as the nice illustrations.
