Caption: Penicillium fungal spores. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of fruiting bodies of the fungus Penicillium roqueforti. These fruiting bodies (conidiophores) consist of branching chains of spores (conidia, bead-like structures). The mature spores germinate to form new fungi. Penicillium roqueforti is used commercially in the fermentation of blue-veined cheeses. Magnification: x310 at 6x7cm size.
