Hello! What do you think is a better biology topic for an extended essay? "Testing the claims regarding particular herbs and plants (to be identified later) regarding their attainment of antimicrobial properties and comparing their effectiveness of inhibiting the growth of bacteria" or "Investigating the impact of increasing the concentration of a particular disinfectant (to be identified later) on the development of bacteria of resistance towards that disinfectant".

I would say the first one rather than the later. Whilst the later is interesting and easy to write about, it seems more of a IA topic because it's a bit limited in the scope. The EE should be something that takes you well over a year to research, study, and write up. So I would think antimicrobial plants would be interesting if you can pick a particular plant with a good reasoning behind picking the plant, but then you'd need to be able to stretch it rather far.

I did my EE in biology as well, but I only got a B so take my advice with a grain of salt.
