Since 1988, richard lenski has watched e coli bacteria multiply through 59,000 generations, a span that has allowed him to observe evolution. Most bacteria measure in the range of 05 to 4 µm (micrometer not microns) darkfield microscopy can also be used for observing bacterial motility pathway. We investigate the motion of two bacterial protein toxins, the α-toxin of clostridium septicum (csαt) and ε-toxin of clostridium perfringens (cpεt), both members.
