Title:In Light of Bacteria
Author(s):Bobrovskyy, Maksym
Contributor(s):Eric Masse Lab in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada
Abstract:Bacteria are microscopic living organisms responsible for the diseases that effected humanity over its whole existence. One of such bacteria and the most studied model organisms in microbiology is a Gram-negative pathogen, Escherichia coli. Research on this organism has produced numerous fundamental discoveries of processes that are shared by all living things, including humans. Having such a profound importance to the understanding of life, E. coli remains to be the model organism of choice in many laboratories around the world. One of such places is a lab studying gene regulation located in a town of Sherbrooke in Quebec that I visited in August, where, to demonstrate our shared love for E. coli, I painted this microorganism with its protruding flagella, using slow shutter speed and a flashlight.
