In the technique culturing the microbes (fungi and bacteria), the media commonly used are solid placed in a petri dish.
Depending on the species of microbes that would be cultured, on jelly is usually mixed with sugar as a carbon source for growth of microbes, or other food sources such as casein.
To grow microbes on jelly, the sample is smeared on the surface of medium with the porpuse in aseptic conditions.
Colonies of bacteria that grow can be seen using the naked eye, the formation of mucus formed in accordance with the direction of spread.
Colonies of bacteria in the form of mucus have a shape, the level of turbidity, and unique color to each species. So it is with mushrooms. Fungal colonies growing hyphae appeared (body fungus), a soft like cotton and colorful.
Well, below are photos of microbial cultures made by the microbiologist. With his expertise, they raise various species of microbes in one medium. When the colonies of microbes grow a few days later, what appears is a form of pretty pictures and unique.
