The purpose of this experiment is to see which type of bacteria are found on Longwood University's plant life. Identities of three of the flowers were found using genomics. It was found that there was a greater quantity of bacteria colonies on the wildflowers behind the EEC building however, there was greater diversity of bacterial colonies on the Rotunda flowers.
