This image depicts a close view of the surface of an unidentified Petri dish culture dish growth medium, which had been inoculated with the organism Mycobacterium tuberculosis, highlighting the bacterium’s colonial morphology. Note the colorless, rough surface, which are typical morphologic characteristics seen in M. tuberculosis colonies. Macroscopic examination of colonial growth patterns is still one of the ways microorganisms are often identified.
