Effect of a sinI mutation on the formation of a centrally-located population of non-motile cells during swarming. Two swarm agar Petri plates, centrally inoculated, were photographed from above and illuminated by an oblique transmitted light source from below to visualize the swarming monolayer of cells. The images were bisected, and juxtaposed such that the left half of the panel depicts the swarm produced by 3610 cells (WT) and the right half depicts the swarm produced by DS91 cells (sinI). The white arrow indicates the edge of the swarm, which is composed of single motile cells. The black arrow indicates the edge of the central population, which enriched with non-motile cells growing in chains. Scale bar is 1 cm. Download here.
