Confocal microscopy of a bacterial biofilm composed of Bacillus subtilis expressing fluorescent proteins (TagRFP-T, sfGFP, TagBFP, mKate2 and mOrange2) to identify distinct lineages of bacteria in the biofilm. As the bacteria grow within a biofilm, they organize themselves into reproducible patterns and shapes that can be predicted with mathematical models.
