I am currently studying Biology at Advanced level in England. I intend to do a project on the effect of using different brands of toothpaste against the growth of bacteria. I will be measuring the area of inhibition of growth in an agar plate and I intend to use the E.Coli bacteria. I was wondering if you could suggest a better alternative bacteria to use in its place. Also, I was wondering if you could send me some more information on this type of project, for example the active ingredient in toothpastes, and the various ways I could tackle this experiment. Please could you send me some information as soon as possible. Thank you for your time.
