ABSTRACT The author works with microorganisms that produce colored natural pigments to create biopaintings that result from the manipulation of organisms and their specific interactions. The author's biopaintings were obtained by controlling the growth of yeast cells on paper, ensuring the stability of the final results. These biopaintings resulted from the artist's observation and experimentation with evolving patterns of yeast biofilms. The often-unexpected results are part of the creative…

Biopaintings Produced by Filamentous Fungi
ABSTRACT The author explores the use of tridimensional filamentous fungi patterns to produce biopaintings. The painting process involves incorporation of food dyes into a fungi growth medium. Then,
Pherographs and other hidden landscapes
TLDR
Pherographia is addressed from its genesis as a swarm model to its use as an artificial art tool and metaphor for creating a figurative and abstract body-of-work that has been presented to a heterogeneous audience.

Microbial Biofilms: from Ecology to Molecular Genetics
TLDR
The recent explosion in the field of biofilm research has led to exciting progress in the development of new technologies for studying these communities, advanced the authors' understanding of the ecological significance of surface-attached bacteria, and provided new insights into the molecular genetic basis ofBiofilm development.
A new naphthaquinone antibiotic from a new species of yeast.
TLDR
A fusiform yeast producing limited pseudomycelium and limited true mycelium on malt extract agar has been isolated and is distinctive enough to warrant the designation of a new genus.
Biofilm, City of Microbes
In most natural environments, association with a surface in a structure known as a biofilm is the prevailing microbial lifestyle. Surface association is an efficient means of lingering in a favorable
Carotenoid pigments from the red mirror yeast, Sporobolomyces roseus
TLDR
Putative physiological roles and the biotechnological relevance of carotenoids from red yeasts are discussed and simple protocols for the extraction of these pigments and their visual separation by thin-layer chromatography are presented.
Culture conditions for yellow pigment formation byMonascus sp. KB 10 grown on cassava medium
TLDR
The spectroscopic characterization of the purified yellow pigments demonstrated a monascin-ankaflavin-monascorubrin skeleton, which had a single maximum absorption spectrum at 330 nm.
