False Colour Sem Of Fruiting Bodies
Dr Jeremy Burgess .

False colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the fruiting bodies or conidia of a penicillin fungus growing on a piece of English cheddar cheese which has gone mouldy in the refrigerator. The fungus Penicillium sp. grows as a mycelium of hyphal threads on and within the cheese, sending out branches or conidiophores, which bear from their tips the conidia (tuft-like clusters). The conidia resemble beads strung together in a chain. Once ripe, each bead can germinate into a new organism. Magnification x390 at 6x45cm size.
