Painting with Microbes

I did not really have any intent, but I was looking at the different colors of bacteria provided and I noticed that there was a lot of red and
white/yellow. I asked my lab partner what things I could draw that were white and red, and she suggested a candy cane, so that’s what I attempted to paint.

I did my painting on the TSA agar which is a complex medium, which we know is used as a general growth medium for many different typed of bacteria. I used the S. marcescens to create the red color and I think it was the s. enteritidis that I used for the white color.
