A new study has brought science one step closer to a molecular-level understanding of how patterns form in living tissue. The researchers engineered bacteria that, when incubated and grown, exhibited stochastic Turing patterns: a ‘lawn’ of synthesized bacteria in a petri dish fluoresced an irregular pattern of red polka dots on a field of green.
