The Jet Propulsion Laboratory Clinic team investigated various behavior aspects of a novel magnetotactic bacterium, LA-ARB-1. Aerotaxis, phototaxis, motility, and viability studies were the focus of the team’s investigations. Results from their work contribute to a better understanding of how LA-ARB-1 uses its internal structure to take advantage of its unique environment.
