Winogradsky column lab page!

Welcome to the Winogradsky column lab page! Students from the Departments of Biological Applications and Technology, University of Ioannina and Icthyology and Aquatic Environment, University of Thessaly, Greece and the Microbiology course, Faculty of Sciences, University of Cádiz, Spain, discuss their findings on Winogradsky columns they constructed!

Bienvenidos a la pagina web de los Winobloggers! Aquí los estudiantes y profesores de dos departamentos griegos, el Departamento de Aplicaciones y Tecnologías Biológicas de la Universidad de Ioannina y el Departmento de Agricultura, Ictiología y Sistemas Acuáticos de la Universidad de Thessalia, junto con los estudiantes de Microbiología de la Facultad de Ciencias en la Universidad de Cádiz, se reúnen para observar, comentar, preguntar y responder a preguntas relacionadas con nuestro experimento, la columna Winogradsky.

Group 6A, first day

The Winogradsky column is a micrography of an acuatic ecosystem which is exposed to a permantent solar source, it allows the growth of several kind of microorganism.
In our case, we added:
  1. Cellulose: 0,51 g.
  2. NaCl: 2..1 g.
  3. Na2SO4: 1.2 g.
  4. Calcium Carbonate:0.65 g.
  5. Calcium Sulfate: 0.81 g.
  6. Glucose: 0.59 g.
After adding this enrichment material, we expect microorganism to grow in there. 
  • Halo bacterias because we added NaCl
  • Bacterias capable of metabolizing cellulose.
  • CaCO3 and glucose as carbon source for organism.
  • Na2SOand calcium sulfate like energy source doing fermentatives process.

  1. Sulfate is used for fermentative purposes? Which organisms use CaCO3 and which glucose?
