Microbial art for the holidays from the J. Craig Venter Institute

Saw this Tweet on Christmas Day

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js It was from Russell Neches, a PhD student in my lab.

Went to the site “La boite verte” and checked out their post “Des champignons de Noël.”

Discovered it was based on a post from none other than the J. Craig Venter Institute’s blog: Holiday Art” JCVI Blog. The post is by Stephanie Mounaud from December 2010 and it has three wonderful fungal art forms. I am embedding the images of them below:
