    UMR 7766 CNRS, LIENSS Littoral Environnement and Sociétés, Universite de La Rochelle, La Rochelle, France
    FEMS Microbiol Lett 333:101-8. 2012
    ..Changes in colonies' colors (blue, violet, red, yellow, and green) were linked to cell density. These data indicate that iridescence is induced under conditions that mimic the natural biotope of C. lytica...
