Researchers who develop novel treatments for treatment-resistant fungal infections have found a new ally: Synthetic polymers.

The American Society for Microbiology announces the winners of their 4th annual Agar Art contest. Submissions of artwork were created using living, growing microbes ‘painted’ on agar, a gelatin-like substance that serves as food for the microorganisms.

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) recently announced that ASM Journals are now accepting initial submissions in any format to ease the submission process for authors.
