Yum, sugar. Nom Nom Nom.

Here is just a sliver of a project I've been working on. Just like us humans, this simplest of all unicellular organisms, Mycoplasms genitalium, converts glucose into energy and metabolites that feed into all of its cellular processes. This bug has clearly never heard of the Atkin's diet, but might laugh at us for snubbing such a useful source of fuel, if it had a mouth and a sense of humor.
