Bi234/Introduction To Microbiology Lab 3: Microbes All Around 6. Colony characteristics are due to underlying properties/abilities of bacteria within a colony. For instance, the color of a particular bacterial colony is related to a product that they make and that color can be used to narrow the possible types of bacteria to a particular genus. Thus, if your colony was yellow this may indicate certain Micrococcus or Neisseria (nonpathogenic) species. Given the characteristics of Colony 1 and Colony 2 below, what might you predict about the properties/abilities of the bacteria in each colony? Colony 1 is large in diameter with an irregular margin and its surface is flat. Colony 2 is small in diameter with a circular margin and convex in elevation.
