Abstract

Swarming cells of the sulfide-oxidizing bacterium Thiovulum majus form bands and show bioconvective patterns of swimming when placed in vessels containing H2S/O2 interfaces. Measurements of swimming velocities with video microscopic recordings under such conditions showed mean cell speeds as high as 615 microns s-1, unprecedented in bacteria.
