Engaging the Public with Plate Art

Who says Microbiology is boring? The RubinLab’s own Dongyun Jung has put together some plate art for display at Vetavision 2017, the WCVM’s triannual open house. Dongyun has used Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli in his latest works which are proudly displayed in the “Germs, Worms and Toxins” booth – stop by and a vet student will be happy to give you the run down on these bacteria that can be beautiful and dangerous at the same time… just don’t forget to wash your hands!
