Tattie Bacteria

Been helping the girls in the lab today by taking pictures of bacteria growing on some potato samples. The potato variety is one with purple flesh there are many colours out with the cream/white ones which dominate the supermarkets. Potatoes originally for the Andes in South America were not pure white but contained colour. They were bred to be a solid white colour as this allowed easier spotting of bacteria, fungi, viruses and damage.
