C-MOULD, is the world’s largest collection of microorganisms for use in the arts and design, with over 50 different kinds of microorganism. We have bacteria and fungi that glow in ethereal shades of green and blue light, bacteria that make gold and electrically conductive nanowires, and bacteria that produce biotextiles. We also possess the largest collection of pigmented bacteria.

Christmas preparations are well underway and our next batch of festive BioDomes is ready for despatch. Microbial gifts to hang on the Christmas tree. None of that gold frankincense and myrrh shite but gifts with world-changing power like penicillin.
