Biologists Contribute to Growth in Imaging

How To Grow Your Own PhotoUsing bacterial plates, bioengineer Chris Voigt and his team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created the world’s first photograph composed completely of single-cell organisms. Using a similar strategy, Jeff Tabor at Rice University is currently working to develop full-color bacterial images. For complete instructions see How To Grow Your Own Photo.

Note: This sounds like a great science fair project but I’m not certain it is practical, since the resulting photographs must be refrigerated.
