the_nanoart Yeast Feast!

At first sight, it's a pretty colorful mess, but the picture has a stunning background story. It's the ultimate example of community on the nanoscale.
Within this yeast colony, artificial fluorescent proteins act like beacons showing which yeast cells are producing histidine (blue), leucine (green) and methionine (red). These are metabolites (kind of "chemical food) that yeast mostly produce for themselves but also offer to their neighbors. Since they randomly lose the ability to produce different metabolites, due to genetic changes, this colony has become like a little, busy market. Besides the lucky few that can produce their own red, green and blue-colored metabolites, the yeasts must swap with each other or die! Researchers believe this is proof of cooperation inside sprawling colonies.

Pretty cool, colorful mess, isn't it?! #nanoArt #sciart #artscience #science #nano #community #yeast #feast #fluorescence #microscopy #colorful #mess #picoftheday

  •   nanotrash @izitas_arts thanks Iza (!) ☆☆☆☆ 4d
  •   raoleza Fuck this Month 🏼 It's coming out amaz Nanos <3 4d
  •   nanotrash @raoleza Thanks Honey ~☆ I really hope to finish it soon lol BURN THIS MONTH 4d
  •   raoleza @nanotrash enraaggeee 4d
  •   nanotrash @raoleza seriously though why don't we just get rid of this month. I mean its legit the month were you sell expensive AF chocolate with butt design card and balloons.... It must be destroyed 3d
  •   raoleza @nanotrash the cards I can live with because puns but omg there's literally no point in it. What's even worse it's a leap year 3d
  •   leone_ny Rad 2d
  •   nanotrash @leone_ny thanks (!) 22h

  •   raoleza SCREAMING 5d
  •   nanotrash @raoleza SCREAMS BACK AAAAAAH 5d
  •   nebuaarts Look at the pic...yeah!!! More Nano art!!! Hope you'll finish it soon, Nebu wanna see more Rocky babu 3d
  •   nanotrash @nebuaarts NANO DELIVERS BOOTYFUL ARTSUUU XD It mihht take a while to finish (to many lines to color eeeh) but Rocky deserves more artsu so I'll try not to procrastinate to much lolz 3d

the_nanoart These nanoflowers were created by Jinhyung Park (University of Turin). He is working with CuSCN nanowires, which is a very interesting material for photovoltaic cells due to its hole transfer characteristics. Functionalization with mercaptopropionic acid led to this flower-shaped structure. Their composition can be confirmed by different methods such as Energy Dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometry (XPS). #nanoArt #sciart #artscience #science #nano #wires #flowers #nanogarden #EDX #XPS #Xray 2w

the_nanoart This image ("Nanosea") displays a multi-walled carbon nanotubes network which was produced by Jonathan Quinson using a technique called "Aerosol Assisted Chemical Vapour Deposition" (AACVD). Additional, the nanotube network was decorated with platinum nanoparticles in order to achieve high electrocatalytic currents.
By applying novel carbon nanomaterials for the development of high-surface area electrodes, the next generation of energy devices, such as fuel cells or new catalyst systems, can be refaced. Since carbon nanomaterials may be modified with metal nanoparticles, organic molecules or active enzymes, one can tailor and adjust their functionality according to specific requirements.

The stunning shot was the first winning image at the nRai & OCSiAl Nano Imagery Contest in 2015. It was captured by scanning electron microscope and was post-edited to bring into colors.
