A Design in Yeast

As I waited for my plates to dry, Katayoun let me experiment with some yeast that had undergone a haploid dissection process, allowing it to turn a lovely reddish pink... here I streaked a bit into the silhouette of the red brome plant.. in preparation for my painting with the bacteria cultivated from that plant. (Photo of the plate on the right = about 1 1/2 days of growing the yeast culture, plate on the left = the guide drawing).
