These images are part of a series of remarkable patterns that bacteria form when grown in a petri dish. The colors and shading are artistic additions, but the image templates are actual colonies of tens of billions of individual microorganisms. The colony structures form as adaptive responses to laboratory-imposed stresses that mimic hostile environments faced in nature. Please visit Dr. Ben-Jacob’s website for more information.
