Rowland Institute at Harvard: Video of Tethered E. coli

Twirling bacteria. Flagella are attached to a glass slide and motor rotation visualized by the twirling cell. Note that when a motor turns counterclockwise, the attached cell will twirl clockwise. Notice some cells switch from clockwise to counter-clockwise rotation.
