This is a picture of Mario that was created in a petri dish at the University of Osaka in Japan. It's proof positive that the cure for cancer is just around the corner. So, how do you create a picture of Mario in a petri dish? It ain't paint by numbers! (It might actually be paint by numbers).
By genetically engineering bacteria to express fluorescent proteins and carotenoid pigments.
Oh-ho! So now you know. Reminds me of when i used to get my agarose gel electrophoresis on back in the day. You know what I'm talkin' about? I'm talking DNA. Dynamic nuclear acetates. What? Don't question me, I AM science!
