Overnight Growth (Magnetospirillum Gryphiswaldense)
Microscopic Study of Magnetospirillum Gryphiswaldense
I also wanted to check if these cells where motile. I am not sure if this is an indication to whether they are dead or not. The cells do have flagella.
Transmission electron micrographs showing cells of various magnetotactic bacteria and magnetosome crystals. The morphological forms include large rods (A, B), coccoid cells (C), and spirilla (D). Morphologies of magnetosomes include bullet-shaped (E), cubooctahedral (F) and prismatic crystals (G, H)
