How does a colony form?

When a single bacterial cell is deposited on a solid nutrient medium, it begins to divide. One cell makes two, two makes four, four make eight. Eventually a visible mass of cells, a colony, appears.

2

In what 4 ways are color, size, shape, and texture of microbial growth determined?

1. genetic makeup of the organism
2. nutrient availability
3. temperature
4. incubation

3

The 5 basic categories of colony morphology

2. margin (edge)
3. elevation
4. texture
5. pigment production (color)

4

3 types of colony shape
