Microbiology, Creativity, and Extra Credit

In this blog post, I share the creative projects that my Biology 350 (Microbiology) micronauts created this semester. They range from video parodies, to prose poems, to short-short stories to sculptures and needlepoint. Enjoy! Read More

Beautiful Bacillus IIII

At the start of each semester students do environmental swabs. This was a swab taken form the bottom of a shoe incubated for 48 hrs at 37 degrees C then held at room temp for 48 hrs then held at refrigerated temp's. Seen is a beige matt elongated (not circular) colony, rhizoid and raised in the ... Read More

Proteus mirabilis on Blood Agar

A sample of Proteus mirabilis was inoculated on to a blood agar plate by taking a sterile swab and placing a drop in the center of the plate. The plate was then incubated at 37 degrees for 8 hrs. Swarming motility can be seen as a halo around the growth in the center of the plate. Read More

Table Top Color

Swab taken from the lab table top and incubated on TSA for 48 hrs, left at room temperature for 72 hrs then held at refrigerated temperature for a month. Pictured is a colorful mucoid orange yeast (possible rhodotorula) slowly overtaking several other colonies (yellow is a presumable yeast as we... Read More

Exams, Science Art, and Learning!

In this blog post, I describe how I encourage microbiology students to draw cartoons about basic concepts in the course. I find that this approach promotes ownership, better comprehension, and gives me better insight into what the students are "seeing" in my class. Read More

Unknown Environmental Swab from Handrail

Out door wood railing was swabbed onto TSA and grown for 48 hrs at 37 degree's C, then allowed to grow at room temperature for 72 hrs the held at refrigerated temperature for a month. This is a close up of some of the organisms that grew. One was a white circular fungal colony with hyphae, the o... Read More
