Microbes are the cornerstone of the biotechnology revolution, but can you also consider them beautiful? Join Genspace to participate in a hands-on activity designed to highlight the wonders of the microbial world! In this hands-on event, you'll learn how microbes can be engineered to produce eye-pleasing images and novel materials. Genspace will provide colorful or fluorescent microbes that you can paint on your own agar 'canvas'! This event is part of the American Society for Microbiology Agar Art contest, and all participants will be invited to enter their microbial art for the chance to win a prize! To learn more, you can visit Julie Wolf spent her research career focused on medical mycology and infectious disease. Broadly interested in microbiology and scientific communication, she has taught at Long Island University as well as at Genspace. She has written for the Scientista Foundation and Scholastic’s Science World magazine. Julie is also American Society for Microbiology's Communications Specialist. In collaboration with:
