Appreciate the Charm of the Chinese Artworks Created with Microorganisms!

Have you ever seen drawings created with microorganisms?


Angel Yeast Co., Ltd., a global leading company in the yeast industry, has held microbial petri dish art competitions in universities and scientific research institutions in China for five consecutive years.


This year, the theme of the 5th Microbial Petri Dish Art Competition is “Chinoiserie”. As of now, 344 works from 53 universities and research institutes have been received, and the number of online votes is expected to reach 500,000.


"The purpose of the competition is to promote the popularization of microbiological science knowledge, and to allow our biotechnology researchers to create artistic works outside of work, and to uplift their mind and spirit." Said Mr. Yang Yizhi, general manager of Angel Microbial Nutrition Division.


Relying on the advantages of yeast technology, Angel has developed a comprehensive microbial nutrition product system based on yeast extract, including yeast, animal, and plant-based microbial nutrients as well as complex culture media, to meet the "natural, clean, stable and efficient" needs of the bio-fermentation industry.


Do you know how beautiful the “Chinoiserie” created by microorganisms is? Let us experience the magic and beauty of microbial Chinese fad.
