    Study shows how self-swimming microorganisms get by in harsher conditions

    Many bacteria swim towards nutrients by rotating the helix-shaped flagella attached to their bodies. As they proceed, the cells may either’run’ in a straight line, or’fall’ by varying the rotational directions of the flagella, inducing their avenues to intentionally alter course. Through a process named’chemotaxis,’ bacteria can decrease their rate of tumbling at higher levels
