Colony morphology



(microbiology) The morphology of cellular colonies grown in cultures


Determining colony morphology is important to characterize a bacterial colony in cultures in terms of shape, color, edge, and elevation. It is usually done by observing the colony with the unaided eye (i.e. not necessarily through microscopy). Colony morphology is one of the means in identifying bacterial species.
