Neurons

Neurons and biological shapes is a common theme in the works of the artist Maria Penil. Here she painted with yellow Nesterenkonia, orange Deinococcus and Sphingomonas isolated for their attractive colors as contaminants in the Berkmen lab. After growing the plates for 2 days at 30C, the artist ... Read More

Student Art : "Lyme"

Yeast go viral #agarart2015

Thanksgiving

One semester someone unplugged the -70oC freezer used to store my bacterial cultures so I had to streak each culture out to see if it was still viable and make more stocks.

A Trillion Birthdays

If you think rabbits reproduce quickly, wait until you hear about microbes. A single bacterial cell can divide once every 20 minutes. Bacteria also do not grow in the same way as we think of growth; an individual growing larger. In bacteria, one full-grown adult cell divides to form two full-... Read More

Shell

The artist Maria Penil draws much inspiration from biological shapes that are especially found in aquatic environments. In this work Maria painted with yellow Nesterenkonia, orange Deinococcus and Sphingomonas. She then added sea shells to accentuate bio-aquatic shapes as the agar plate was seal... Read More

Geometric Growth #agarart2015
