penicillin on orange

My very first attempt to grow Penicillin

Workshop with Mindaugas Gapsevicius

Saturday, April 22, 3pm @ >top Schillerpalais

Penicillin is a group of antibiotics produced from penicillium fungi lurking around bread, citric fruits, and all around. It kills a number of pathogenic bacteria and is considered to be a kind of useful antibiotic for humans. While actually growing penicillium molds, we will talk about interaction between fungi and bacteria. We will also discuss up to date issues around antibiotics and probiotics.

Participation fee is 5 euro, Top eV/Schillerpalais members have it for free.
