    Escherichia coli swimming is robust against variations in flagellar number

    Patrick J Mears et al.
    The swimming behavior of E. coli is surprisingly robust against the natural variations in the number of flagella per cell.

    High-speed, three-dimensional imaging reveals chemotactic behaviour specific to human-infective Leishmania parasites

    Rachel C Findlay et al.
    High-speed holographic microscopy shows that Leishmania parasites modify their swimming behaviour to target human macrophages.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to survival in nature

    Severin Sasso et al.
    Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga C. reinhardtii has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.

    c-di-GMP heterogeneity is generated by the chemotaxis machinery to regulate flagellar motility

    Bridget R Kulasekara et al.
    Real time measurements of c-di-GMP in individual cells reveal an unexpected mechanism by which the chemotaxis machinery controls c-di-GMP heterogeneity, thereby regulating flagellar-based motility.

    Flower-like patterns in multi-species bacterial colonies

    Liyang Xiong et al.
    Mechanical interactions between bacterial species with different motility characteristics play an important role in spatial-temporal dynamics of multi-species bacterial colonies and can lead to formation of complex patterns.

    Interspecies interactions induce exploratory motility in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Dominique H Limoli et al.
    Pseudomonas aeruginosa coordinates invasion and destruction of Staphylococcus aureus communities by modulating single-cell and collective motility.

    Regulating G protein-coupled receptors by topological inversion

    Bray Denard et al.
    Multiple biochemical assays show that the topology of CCR5 and possibly other GPCRs may be inverted by ceramide or other sphingolipids through the process of regulated alternative translocation.

    Nematophagous fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora mimics olfactory cues of sex and food to lure its nematode prey

    Yen-Ping Hsueh et al.
    Genetic and behavior analyses show that Caenorhabditis nematodes are lured to the predator Arthrobotrys oligospora by olfactory mimicry of food and sex cues.

    Circuit mechanisms encoding odors and driving aging-associated behavioral declines in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Sarah G Leinwand et al.
    Neurotransmission pathways from primary to secondary neurons encode odor and underlie age-related sensory behavioral declines.

    A stochastic neuronal model predicts random search behaviors at multiple spatial scales in C. elegans

    William M Roberts et al.
    A stochastic model of locomotory control in C. elegans based on an extensive new set of tracking data can explain and predict effects of ablations and mutations on behavior.
