Glimpses of Gut Microbes

Bacteria (false colored) in the gut of a live larval zebrafish. Each is a projection of a 3D image, part of a series capturing the first 16 hours of colonization of an initially empty intestine. Over this period a few intrepid individual bacteria divide into several thousand. These two images are separated in time by five hours.

The idea that directly observing gut microbes can give us insights into their behavior is an important part of the META center’s approach to microbiome research.This week, graduate student Matthew Jemielita with colleagues in the labs (more…)
