Swimming bacteria with helical flagella are self-propelled micro-swimmers in nature, and the swimming strategies of such bacteria vary depending on the number and the position of flagella on the cell body. In bacterial flagella-based propulsion, the major driving force comes from a rotary motor that is embedded in the cell body and is connected to the flagellar filament via a universal joint ‘hook.’ We will introduce two microorganisms, multi-flagellated E. coli and single-flagellated Vibrio A.
