Microbial Painting

My microbe paintings were inspired by sushi, due to my being hungry during lab. Shown here is nigiri: tuna (red = Serratai marcescens), salmon (orange = my isolate), and tamago (yellow = can’t remember) on rice (white = Citrobacter freundii). I decided to paint on the TSA plate because it displays the colors the best, and is a complex media that allows the growth of most bacterial cultures.
