Mit modernen Methoden zu magnetischen Mikroben


Magnets, methods, and microbes have contributed to the study of magnetotactic
bacteria over the past decades. On the way from an unlikely discovery
to making Magnetospirillum the “Microbe of 2019” there has been
a fruitful interaction of classical microbiological methods with emerging
molecular techniques. This has turned the view of magnetotactic bacteria
from microbial curiosities towards established models for prokaryotic cell
biology and biomineralization.
