Caption

Contaminated plant culture. Culture of plant tissue in a biotechnology laboratory being damaged by fungal contamination. The white and blue fungus is smothering the plants. The contamination occurred because the culture was not kept under sterile conditions. The fungus is feeding on the nutritious gel which acts as a soil substitute for the plants. These plants are clones grown from fragments of a single "parent" plant in a process known as micropropagation.
