At Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, work is being conducted to better understand how bacteria, like Shewanella sp, are able to utilize solid-phase minerals for growth. This image is of an iron biogenic mineral formed and colonized by the bacterium Shewanella oneidensis MR-1. The bacterial cells (red) and polysaccharide (green) were imaged by fluorescence and the mineral phase (blue) was imaged by reflection.
