E. coli bacteria, the humble organisms with whom we share a symbiotic relationship, were genetically modified with iGem bio-bricks to express three different kinds of fluorescent proteins; red, green, and cyan. The bacteria were captured trough time-lapse laser-scanning confocal microscopy while undergoing growth and movement experiments. Processes that normally occur on the scale of 500 nanometers are suddenly visible a hundred thousand times their original size. This project was made possible with the support of the California NanoSystems Institute and the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts.
