This illustration depicts a three-dimensional (3D) computer-generated image of a fluconazole-resistant species from the genus of fungal organisms, Candida. In this view, you will note that there were clusters, as well as single blastoconidia, which are the asexually produced reproductive cells, that are produced through the process of budding, and were attached to the septate hyphal filaments. The artistic recreation was based upon scanning electron microscopic (SEM) imagery.
