The image shows an agar plate with bright shinny bright green colonies growing in a precised direction. this tells us that Life is beautiful, colorful and full of precision. Each person ought to direct the path he/she wants to take in life and make it shine out to brighten the surroundings. Read More
Mapping deletion mutations by genetic tools is one thing, seeing them displayed along the length of a DNA molecule is quite another. But how can one see what isn’t there? In 1968, Ronald Davis and Norman Davidson did just that—visualizing deletion mutations in the genome of coliphage l. They rea... Read More

In the photo series "Impermanence," South Korean artist Seung-Hwan Oh creates colorful, otherworldly portraits with a little help from some "friends" — emulsion-consuming microbes, that is.
By immersing an exposed roll of medium-format positive film in water containing these bacteria and lea... Read More
Fungal contaminant seen on Starch agar after 1 month at refrigerated temperatures. Colonies were blackish green and circular. Elevated tufts could be seen in the middle of each colony with small water droplets in the rhizoid growth. Read More
Colonies are initially black and yeast-like, becoming suede-like, olivaceous grey and mould-like with age. This photo show the morphology of colony after a week.

The Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi, is an obligate parasite that cycles between ticks and vertebrate hosts. B. burgdorferi alters the proteins expressed on its outer surface, depending on the state of each host. Here, we used immunofluorescent antibodies to identify spirochetes th... Read More
The picture was taken after my students at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico-San German, learned the technique of water filtration analysis of fecal coliforms in water. They filtrated a mL of groundwater from a nearby aquifer and transferred the filter to Endo agar plates. The pictur... Read More
