2D-X-ray diffraction analyses of aligned magnetotactic bacteria reveal [111] and [100] fiber textures along the chain direction as a function of cell species. The [100] axis appears unfavorable because it represents a magnetic hard axis in magnetite. Calculations show how this can be turned into an effective easy axis for a given particle elongation.
