Question: suppose you are studying a bacterial species that forms punctiform...

Question details

Suppose you are studying a bacterial species that forms punctiform, small, white colonies. After 24 h of incubation, you analyzed cells from a colony (A) using the Gram staining technique. This colony produced purple rods. The culture was further incubated for an additional 48 h, and Gram staining on cells from the colony (A) was performed again. This time the cell appeared as red rods. Assuming that all culturing and staining techniques were done properly, provide one possible explanation to account for differences in staining results.
