Scientists Make Art Using Bacteria Grown In Petri Dishes

The American Society for Microbiology just wrapped up its 2015 Agar Art contest. It’s a competition for scientists to create art using bacteria grown in petri dishes. Reminds me of that one time I discovered a half eaten Hot Pocket under my bed. No telling how long he’d been there, but long enough for him to have a fully developed personality. His name’s Terry!
